Assumption College Named to The Princeton Review’s 2014 ‘Best in the Northeast’ List

Assumption College is one of the best colleges in the Northeast, according to nationally recognized education services company, The Princeton Review. It is one of 226 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Northeast” section of its website feature, “2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region." The feature, which was posted August 5, 2013, includes colleges in the 11-state Northeast region that stand out as academically excellent and that have strong regional reputations. Collectively, the 643 colleges named “regional best(s)” constitute about 25 percent of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges.

“We are pleased to recommend Assumption College to students as one of the best schools to earn their undergraduate degree,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president and publisher. “We chose Assumption mainly for its excellent academic programs.”

Assumption College President Francesco Cesareo noted that the College is proud to once again be named among the best in the Northeast. “Assumption is committed to academic excellence and values all dimensions of the college experience – intellectual, social, community service, and spiritual,” he said. “Through their experience at Assumption, our students grow as individuals and reflect the values that are central to our mission as a Catholic institution."

Assumption’s selection was based on several factors including analysis of institutional data as well as an 80-question student survey. Assumption students rated the College on everything from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of campus food.
