Clarkson University Makes The Princeton Review’s Best Colleges List

The Princeton Review’s profile on Clarkson includes student comments such as “Academics and hockey are the school’s greatest strengths,” and “Clarkson has a very good name. Employers come here to recruit because they know the Clarkson student is likely to be successful. Alumni have gone on to be CEOs or own their own company.”

Clarkson University is once again among the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features Clarkson in The Best 361 Colleges, the new 2006 edition of its annual “best colleges” guide just released. Only 15% of the four-year colleges in the U.S. and two colleges in Canada are on The Princeton Review list.

The ranking lists in The Best 361 Colleges are based on The Princeton Review’s survey of 110,000 college students. The students reported what life is like at their school. Rankings are based on categories ranging from academics to quality of life. Stephanie Niewieroski, an interdisciplinary engineering and management student who graduated in 2005, gave the following student testimonial in the publication, “Working on a real-life design project has allowed me to see all aspects of a large-scale project from the business and marketing side to engineering and construction … it forces me to think outside the textbook.”

The U.S. News & World Report “Best Colleges” issue also came out this week and Clarkson was listed as one of the “Best national universities offering a doctoral degree.” Clarkson’s undergraduate engineering program and its business school’s supply chain management program were also ranked by U.S. News as among the best in the nation.

Clarkson University is a private, nationally ranked university attracting enterprising, high-ability scholars from diverse backgrounds who thrive in a rigorous, collaborative learning environment. Learning is in a positive, friendly and supportive atmosphere that spans the boundaries of traditional disciplines and knowledge. Faculty pursues research and connects students to their leadership potential in the marketplace through dynamic, real-world problem solving. The University enrolls 3,000 students.
