SUNY Geneseo on The Princeton Review's Best Colleges List for 2014

GENESEO, N.Y. –SUNY Geneseo is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the college in the just-published 2014 edition of its annual flagship college guide, "The Best 378 Colleges." About 15% of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and an additional four outside the country are profiled in the book.

The Princeton Review offers two-page profiles of the colleges plus student survey-based ranking lists of top 20 colleges in 62 categories. The rankings are posted online at www.PrincetonReview.com.

"SUNY Geneseo offers outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our choice of schools for the book," said Robert Franek, vice president for publishing with the Princeton Review and author of "The Best 378 Colleges." "We take into account input we get from our staff, our 35-member National College Counselor Advisory Board, our personal visits to schools, and the wide range of feedback we get from our surveys of students attending these schools. We also work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character."

The Princeton Review's 62 ranking lists in "The Best 378 Colleges" are based on its survey of 126,000 students (about 333 per campus on average) attending the colleges in the book. The 80-question survey asks students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences at them.

The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically, or from 1 to 378 in any category, nor do the rankings reflect The Princeton Review's opinion of the schools. A college's appearance on a ranking list is entirely the result of a high consensus among its surveyed students about a topic compared with that of students at other schools answering the same survey question(s) on the ranking list topic.

The Princeton Review is a New York-based company known for its test preparation, education, and college admission services. It is not affiliated with Princeton University and it is not a magazine.
