Robert Franek, V.P., Publishing, The Princeton Review says, “the schools in this book all have excellent academic programs. We chose them from several hundred Northeastern schools we considered based on institutional data we collect about the schools, our surveys of students attending them, and our visits to schools over the years. We also worked to have a wide representation of colleges in the book by size, selectivity, character and locale.” The Best Northeastern Colleges 2007 Edition includes schools in eleven states and the District of Columbia.
The Princeton Review surveyed 58,000 students at the 222 schools in the book. Students were asked to rate their schools on several matters ranging from the teaching ability of their professors to the campus food. These candid student responses are included in the institutional profiles. Students surveyed at Mount Saint Vincent praised the College’s small classes, and diverse and inclusive population. Students also reported that they benefit from “a community where everyone is willing to help each other grow as a student and as a person.”
Mount Saint Vincent’s inclusion in The Best Northeastern Colleges 2007 Edition recognizes the quality and strength of the College’s faculty, students and academic programs. These programs include more than 30 undergraduate majors and masters degree programs in nursing and urban and multicultural education.
The Princeton Review’s publications, including The Best Northeastern Colleges 2007 Edition are available through Random House Publishing. Known for its education, admission and test-prep services, The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University or ETS.
