Nazareth Named a "Best in Northeast" by Princeton Review

Nazareth College is one of the best colleges in the Northeast according to The Princeton Review. It is one of 218 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Northeast” section of its website feature, “2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” on It also features the school in its book, “The Best Northeastern Colleges: 2011 Edition” (Random House / Princeton Review Books, On Sale August 10, 2010, $16.99). In its profile on Nazareth College, The Princeton Review describes the college as a very personalized school near Rochester where professors care about the students and you’re “not just a number.”

“We’re pleased to recommend Nazareth College to readers of our book and users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree, said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP / Publishing. We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as ‘regional best” colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs. From several hundred schools in each region, we winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from the schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors whose recommendations we invite. We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for this project. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional ‘best’ lists.”

The 218 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its “Best Northeastern Colleges” book and website list are located in eleven states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont, and the District of Columbia. The Princeton Review also designated 152 colleges in the Midwest, 120 in the West, and 133 in the Southeast as best in their locales on the company’s “2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region” lists. Collectively, the 623 colleges named “regional best(s)” constitute about 25% of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges.

For this project, The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues – from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food – and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life.
