Moravian College Featured in Princeton Review’s “Best 371 Colleges”

Bethlehem, Pa., July 30, 2009—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 2010 edition of its annual book, "Best 371 Colleges." Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are in 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,y and character.”

In its profile on the College, the Princeton Review quotes extensively from Moravian students The Princeton Review surveyed for the book.  The ranking lists in "The Best 371 Colleges" are based on The Princeton Review's survey of 120,000 students (about 325 per campus on average) attending the 371 colleges in the book.

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 2009 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.
