LIM COLLEGE NAMED "A BEST IN THE NORTHEAST" BY THE PRINCETON REVIEW
August 28, 2017
LIM College is one of the best colleges in the Northeast, according to The Princeton Review. The well-known education services company lists LIM among its "Best in the Northeast" recommended schools in its "2018 Best Colleges: Region by Region" website feature, accessible at http://www.princetonreview.com/bestNEcolleges. Only 229 colleges in 11 Northeastern states made The Princeton Review's "Best in the Northeast" list for 2018.
In its website profile on LIM College, The Princeton Review describes the college as “a highly personal environment” and commends it for “providing students with a foundation of core courses in liberal arts and business while offering diverse and intensive real-world preparation for the fashion and related industries.” “We chose LIM College and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their excellent academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief. The Princeton Review editors made their selections based on data the company collected from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, as well as its staff visits to schools over the years, and the perspectives of college counselors and advisors whose opinions the company solicits.
"We also gave careful consideration to what students enrolled at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences on our student survey for this project," Franek added. "We designed our 80-question survey to include questions that prospective applicants might ask on a campus visit. Only schools that permit us independently to survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional 'best' lists, and only schools at which we see a strong level of satisfaction among their enrolled students make it to our final slate of regional 'best' college selections."
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on several issues –from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of facilities – and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site. Among those comments, students noted that LIM College “gives us resources to graduate with a full resume,” “offering opportunities for students to network and find jobs.”
