Albright College Named One of the Best in the Northeast by The Princeton Review


Aug. 6, 2014


Reading, Pa. – Albright College has once again been named one of the best schools in the Northeast by The Princeton Review.

Albright is one of 225 colleges and universities named to The Princeton Review’s “Best Northeastern” list, part of the company’s online feature “2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region.” The Princeton Review, an education services company known for its test prep and college guides, assesses schools for academic excellence, compiling the list based on student surveys, data collected through its administrator surveys, and the opinions of its staff and of counselor advisers.

Albright was recognized for its commitment to interdisciplinary education, small classes, discussion-based learning and high level of student involvement.

One Albright student surveyed said the College's "academic approach attracts students who 'value being unique and following your own path. We are able to fit together, because we respect and reward individuality.'"

Gregory Eichhorn, Albright's vice president of enrollment management and dean of admission, called the College's inclusion on the list a great honor.

"This recognition validates Albright's continued commitment to a liberal arts curriculum and experiential learning opportunities that prepare our graduates for an ever-changing job market," said Eichhorn.

Albright students also lauded the College for its great facilities and ongoing efforts to improve campus buildings. This includes the recently renovated Science Center and the new John K. Roessner III ’61 Hall: The Center for Business and Civic Leadership at Albright College, set to open this fall.

Albright has been named one of the best colleges in the Northeast since 2004.

In total, The Princeton Review recognized 646 colleges and universities in four regions, representing just 25 percent of the nation’s approximately 2,500 four-year colleges. The Northeast region stretches from Maine to Maryland. Schools in the Best Colleges: Region by Region feature are not ranked.
