LIM College Named a 'Best in the Northeast' by The Princeton Review
September 12, 2015
LIM College is one of the best colleges in the Northeast, according to The Princeton Review. For the tenth consecutive year, the nationally-known education services company recommends LIM as one of 226 institutions in 11 Northeastern states and the District of Columbia on its "Best in the Northeast" list for 2015. The list is part of The Princeton Review’s website feature, "2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region."
Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior Vice President / Publisher, "We developed our "Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists to offer guidance for the growing number of students and parents now seeking colleges closer to home. We selected LIM College -- and the other terrific institutions on our 'regional best' lists -- primarily for their excellent academic offerings."
The Princeton Review editors narrowed their choices based on institutional data collected directly from several hundred colleges in each region, staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions college counselors and advisors whose recommendations The Princeton Review invites.
Franek added, "Our selections also take into account what students at the schools report to us about their experiences at them on our 80- question student survey for this project. We ask every question that a prospective applicant might want to ask on a campus visit. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional 'best' lists."
For this project, The Princeton Review asks current students to rate their own colleges and universities on several issues -- from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of their facilities -- and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site.
Student comments in the profile of LIM College describe the faculty as “…very knowledgeable and able to explain topics clearly.” One student also noted that “Not only does the school help each student graduate with various work experiences but (LIM) also helps build each student's resume and provide them with networking opportunities.”
