University of New Haven Named One of Best Colleges in U.S. by Princeton Review
In the University's profile, students said their classmates are hard-working and engaged in
campus life and that their professors are "amazing."
The University of New Haven was named one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate
education by The Princeton Review in its 2018 "The Best 382 Colleges" guidebook.
Additionally, the University was ranked #17 on the publication's list of "Best Career Services," joining institutions such as Clemson, Bentley, Northeastern, and Emerson.
It is the second year in a row the University is featured in the well-respected guidebook
that serves as a go-to resource for students, families, and high school guidance counselors.
It is also the fourth year in a row The Princeton Review highlighted the University
in its publication.
Only about 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and two colleges outside
the U.S. are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review's most popular
guides. Published annually since 1992, it has detailed profiles of the colleges with
rating scores in eight categories.
The book also has ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories, including career
services. All of the ranking lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of
students attending the colleges.
"We chose the University of New Haven for this book because it offers outstanding
academics," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief and author of "The
Best 382 Colleges." "Our selections are primarily based on our surveys of administrators
at several hundred four-year colleges. We also visit dozens of colleges each year
and give considerable weight to opinions of our staff and our 24-member National College
Counselor Advisory Board, Most importantly, we look at valuable feedback we get from
each school's customers – our surveys of students attending them. We also keep a wide
representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character."
Being recognized by The Princeton Review is a clear endorsement of our students-first
philosophy and the innovative learning opportunities we have provided for generations
of students. It is most gratifying to be acknowledged for the transformational impact
that a University of New Haven education has on our students' lives.
– President Steve Kaplan
