NEW: Princeton Review Names Becker College Among Nation’s Best
Wednesday, April 11, 2012
The college will be added to the Massachusetts-based education services company’s roster of college profiles in the next edition of its “best colleges” guidebook, “The Best 377 Colleges: 2013 Edition.” The book will be on store shelves in late August.
Becker College President Dr. Robert E. Johnson called the distinction an honor for the school.
“Becker is becoming nationally recognized for its leading programs—nursing, animal studies, and video game design—and for a student experience focused on academic excellence, social responsibility and creative expression,” he said. “It is an honor to be selected from more than 2,000 colleges and universities monitored by The Princeton Review and to be included in a premier publication used by hundreds of thousands students and families in college planning.”
The Princeton Review holds Becker College in high regard, Robert Franek, Senior V.P. / Publisher, The Princeton Review, said.
“We chose Becker College as one of our ‘best’ undergraduate colleges based on several factors we consider when reviewing schools for this book,” he said. “First, we must have a high regard for their academic programs and other offerings. Second, our selections take into account institutional data we collect from the schools and the opinions of their students attending them whom we survey. We also greatly value the feedback we get about schools from our college-savvy staff across the country as well as from students, educators and parents who use our services and books."
According to Franek, of all four-year colleges in the nation, only about 15 percent are included in this year’s guidebook.
“In our opinion, these are ‘the crème of the crop’ institutions for undergraduates in America,” Franek said. “Each college we feature is an outstanding institution that we highly recommend to college applicants and their parents."
