Moravian College Featured in 2008 Edition of Princeton Review’s “Best 366 Colleges”

Bethlehem, Pa., August 31, 2007— Moravian College offers students an outstanding undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.  The New York-based education services company features the College in the new 2008 edition of its annual book, "Best 366 Colleges." Only about 15% of the four-year colleges in America and two Canadian colleges were among the select group chosen for the book.  It has two-page profiles of the schools, and student survey-based ranking lists of the top 20 colleges in more than 60 categories.  The Princeton Review also posts the book's annual ranking lists on its website www.PrincetonReview.com where  users may read FAQs about the book, rankings and survey.   

Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's V.P., Publishing, “We chose schools for this book primarily for their outstanding academics.  We evaluated them based on institutional data we collect about the schools, feedback from students attending them, and our visits to schools over the years.  We also consider the opinions of independent college counselors, students, and parents we hear from year-long.  Finally, we work to have a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character.”

"Best 366 Colleges" is one of nearly 200 Princeton Review books published by Random House.  Over the years, various ranking lists in the book have been favorably referenced by President Bill Clinton and Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings and praised by USA Today as “a public service.”  Moravian College is also included in Princeton Review’s “Best Northeastern Colleges: 222 Select Schools to Consider”  and “The Complete Book of Colleges,” both of which are published in 2008 editions.  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.

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
