GENESEO, N.Y. - The Princeton Review has included The State University of New York at Geneseo on its list of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education. Geneseo is featured in the new 2011 edition of its annual guide, "The Best 373 Colleges," released Aug. 3 in bookstores and online. Geneseo has been on the annual list for several years.
About 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are profiled in the book, The Princeton Review's flagship college guide.
"We commend SUNY Geneseo for its outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our selection of schools for the book," said Robert Franek, the publication's senior vice president for publishing. "Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools, and the opinions of our staff and 28-member National College Counselor Advisory Board."
The Princeton Review does not rank colleges in the book academically from 1 to 373 in any category. Instead, it reports 62 ranking lists of "top 20" colleges in various categories. The lists are based entirely on the publication's survey of 122,000 students, about 325 per campus on average, attending the colleges in the book.
The Princeton Review is based in Massachusetts with test preparation locations across the country and abroad. It is not affiliated with Princeton University and is not a magazine.
