Arcadia University in Glenside has ranked among Princeton Review’s “Best in the Northeast” in its “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region” for the fifth consecutive year, writes Caitlin Burns for Arcadia University News.
Arcadia is among nine schools in Greater Philadelphia and 49 in Pennsylvania that are graded “academically outstanding and well worth consideration.” In total, 224 schools are listed as the “Best in the Northeast” region, as well as in 656 from the five zones nationwide.
The prestigious list notes Arcadia’s small classes and personalized attention as trademarks of its experience. In addition, students’ comments emphasized the individualized research opportunities with faculty and global learning experience provided through many study abroad programs.
Students also praised the overall environment at the university where people “share their love of learning.”
Selections for the Princeton Review list are based on extensive research that includes data collection from thousands of colleges across the country, staff visits to schools, and interviews with college counselors and advisers.
Also considered are student surveys that cover issues such as professor receptivity and the campus facilities overall quality.
The colleges that make the list are not ranked but instead presented alphabetically.
