The education services company lists LIM College in the “Best in the Northeast” section of its 2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region website feature. This is the 15th consecutive year LIM has received this designation.
The 2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region feature names 656 schools in five geographic zones that The Princeton Review recommends as "regional bests." These institutions constitute just 22% of the nation's four-year colleges.
From hundreds of schools considered in each region, The Princeton Review made their selections primarily based on academics.
Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief, noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.
"We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," Franek added.
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and campus life. Comments from surveyed students are included on The Princeton Review website.
Students at LIM College describe their peers as “very passionate and excited to learn and experience the fashion industry” and said their classmates “embody creativity, uniqueness, independence, and determination.”
Students also love the fact that faculty members have “a great deal of experience in the industry” as well as “great insight and connections” and said it’s evident that LIM professors “want each student to succeed.”
