Kutztown University has again been named a “Best in the Northeast” by the Princeton Review. The education services company, which is widely known for its test prep programs and college and graduate school guides, named 225 institutions to its “Best in the Northeast” section.
Kutztown has been named to the list four of the last five years.
“It is an honor for Kutztown University to be included among the top institutions in the region,” said Dr. Kenneth S. Hawkinson, president of Kutztown University. “KU has a long tradition of providing an outstanding education, and this ranking is reflective of our efforts to meet lifelong intellectual, ethical, social, and career challenges.”
The institutions named to the list are located in 11 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia.
The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues, from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food, and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site. Kutztown students praised it for offering a small school education at state school pricing.
