Brockport Named to The Princeton Review’s “Best in the Northeast”
The College was one of only 22 percent of four-year colleges to be selected nationally.
The College at Brockport is one of the 224 best colleges in the Northeast according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists Brockport in the Best in the Northeast section of its "2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region" website feature.
The feature salutes a total of 656 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends over five regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. The colleges that made the Best in the Northeast list are located in 11 Northeastern states and The District of Columbia. The 656 selected nationally constitute just 22 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.
In its profile of Brockport, The Princeton Review describes the College as having a unique atmosphere that encourages students to leave their comfort zones and blend with new people.
"We chose Brockport and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief. He noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits. "We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," Franek added.
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life.
