GREENVILLE, PA – Thiel College is one of 222 outstanding colleges and universities in the Northeast that The Princeton Review recommends to college applicants in the new 2007 edition of its book, “The Best Northeastern Colleges.”
“Opportunities to get involved are ripe for the taking here, especially for students looking to kick-start the campus’s interest in politics and diversity. If your interests match Thiel’s strong structure, this Ohio Valley school is worth serious consideration,” The Princeton Review notes in a two-page profile on Thiel College.
“The schools in this book all have excellent academic programs. 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. We also worked to have a wide representation of colleges in the book by size, selectivity, character and locale,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Vice President of Publishing.
The book includes schools in the District of Columbia and eleven states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.
The Princeton Review surveyed 58,000 students at the 222 colleges in this edition of the book (about 250 per campus). The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several matters – from the teaching ability of their professors to their opinion of the campus food – and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students pepper the book's narrative profiles of the colleges.
The 2007 edition of “The Best Northeastern Colleges” is the third edition of the book. Unlike The Princeton Review’s annual “Best 361 Colleges,” “The Best Northeastern Colleges” does not have ranking lists based on student surveys.
