NEWS RELEASE: Princeton Review Names Pace University a “Best in Northeast”
“For students looking to get their feet wet in the real world, the Pace experience couldn’t be better.”
NEW YORK, NY, August 5, 2011 – Pace University is one of the best colleges in the Northeast, and in the top quarter of four year colleges in the US, according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review. Pace is one of 220 Northeast institutions the Review recommends in its website feature, “2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” posted this month on www.PrincetonReview.com.
Nationally, the 629 colleges named regional bests constitute about 25 percent of the country’s 2,500 four-year institutions.
The Review says Pace reflects “an emphasis on career-building and practical education…. For students looking to get their feet wet in the real world, the Pace experience couldn’t be better.”
“The opportunities in New York City are endless,” adds an anonymous student the Review quotes; another says the school’s “co-op department is amazingly good at finding jobs and internships” for students and recent grads.”
In the classroom, a student told the Review, professors “do well integrating their real-world experience into their lessons and encourage discussion from the students.” In many departments, “especially the well-loved theater major,” students say instructors are “absolutely phenomenal in connecting with students,” and many professors “provide amazing opportunities that lead to building a resume as well as a future job.”
Choice based on academic excellence
Explaining the selection process, Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior Vice President and Publisher said, “We chose Pace and the other institutions we name as ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for excellence in academic programs.”
