The University of New Haven is featured in The Princeton Review’s 2019 "The Best 384 Colleges" guidebook. It is the third consecutive year 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 the fifth year in a row The Princeton Review has included the University in its annual ratings of the nation's top colleges and universities.

"Being recognized again by The Princeton Review is a testament to our high-achieving students and our talented faculty and staff who through their boundless expertise and tireless devotion enable our students to achieve more than they ever thought possible," said University of New Haven President Steve Kaplan.

"It is especially gratifying to see how strongly our students feel about the impact their professors are making on their lives and future pursuits and how much they enjoy being part of our close-knit and vibrant campus community." University of New Haven President Steve Kaplan

In the University's profile, students praised their professors who truly believe "their main purpose is to help us prepare to become leaders" and "are amazing and want to help in any way they can."

Students said the University is "full of academic, social, and professional opportunities" and that the relatively small population "allows the professors to get to know you and gives you multiple opportunities for research and other advancements."

Students also said their classmates "know what it is they want" and that everyone is "friendly and had a positive and welcoming attitude." They said the University community is a "huge melting pot" and described the campus as "refreshingly diverse."

Only about 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review's most popular guides. It has been published annually since 1992. The rankings are based on surveys of 138,000 students.

"We picked the 384 'best' colleges for our book primarily for their outstanding academics; we highly recommend each one," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief and the book's lead author.
