'Best Northeastern Colleges' includes Oswego, again

Princeton Review has selected SUNY Oswego for the fourth edition of its college guide “The Best Northeastern Colleges,” published in August. The book is one of five regional guides in the Princeton Review series. Oswego also appeared in all of the previous editions.

“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 attending them, and our visits to schools over the years.”

The Princeton Review series features student opinion. While little changed from previous profiles, noting that “students are friendly” and the college has “great computer facilities” and a “great library,” the 2008 edition makes note of Oswego’s “NCAA 2007 National Champion Division III ice hockey team.”

The book includes 222 colleges in the District of Columbia and 11 states—Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont—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.
