'Best Northeastern Colleges' includes Oswego, again

cover of Princeton Review guidePrinceton Review has selected SUNY Oswego for the second edition of its college guide “The Best Northeastern Colleges.”

The book is one of five regional guides in the Princeton Review series. Oswego also appeared in the first edition, two years ago.

“The schools in this book all have excellent academic programs,” said series publisher Robert Franek. “We chose them from several hundred Northeastern schools we considered based on institutional data we collect about the schools, our surveys of students at them, and our visits to schools over the years.”

The Princeton Review series is famous for featuring student opinion. Student comments about Oswego range from “a good education at an affordable price” and “great library” to “lots of beer drinking” and “the wind will knock you off your feet.”

The book includes 224 schools in 11 states—Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont—and the District of Columbia, from Ivy League schools to public colleges. The first edition listed 135 institutions.

The Princeton Review series of college guides is published by Random House. For more information on “The Best Northeastern Colleges,” visit www.princetonreview.com/college/research/regional.
