The University was recently named one of the nation’s best colleges for 2018 by The Princeton Review, a directory of top colleges. This is the second year in a row that the University has been included in the prestigious and influential college guide.

In addition, the University’s Office of Career Services was ranked 17th in the nation.

When President Steven H. Kaplan joined the University 13 years ago, the student body numbered about 4,000, many of whom were commuters. This fall, the University will include nearly 6,800 students, with more than 65 percent of undergraduates living on campus.

The University is increasingly the first choice for successful students who are looking not only for a fulfilling student-first college experience but also post-graduation opportunities. The incoming students will be a terrific addition to the bright, eager, and capable students returning to campus to complete their degrees.
