Albright named 2020 Best College by Princeton Review

August 14, 2019

The Princeton Review named Albright College one of the best colleges and universities in the northeastern United States for 2020.

The Princeton Review is an educational research firm that offers tutoring, test prep and college admission services. Based on the firm’s surveys of 140,000 current college students, the “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region” list features schools that are “considered academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.” Featured colleges and universities are broken into five zones: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West and International (outside of the United States).

Best in the Northeast

Students shared with the Princeton Review that Albright College provides undergraduates with a “close-knit” community, “full of diversity and passion.” Noting “strong arts and theater programs and a prestigious pre-professional program,” students report that their professors are “extremely passionate about what they teach.” One student explains, “If the students are proactive in reaching out to them, [our professors] are often really understanding when you have problems, be them school, work, or life related.”

Students also say that Albright undergraduates come from “all walks of life, all levels of economic status, and [possess] a variety of different political and social views.” According to Princeton Review, “Above all, the undergrads say that ‘the student body is full of friendly faces,’ and many here are ‘extremely kind and will go out of their way to help you.’”

Albright College has appeared on the Princeton Review’s Best Northeast Colleges list 15 times in the last 16 years.
