Clarkson University Featured in 2007 Edition of The Princeton Review Magazine Annual College Guide, The Best 361 Colleges

According to a survey by The Princeton Review Magazine that asked 115,000 students at 361 top colleges to rate their schools, Clarkson University is one of the Best Northeastern Colleges. The results were published in the 2007 edition of Princeton's Best 361 Colleges book.

We consider these colleges the best in the nation academically says Robert Franek, author of the book at The Princeton Review. But the real challenge for applicants and parents is finding the college that's best for them. That's why our profiles and unique ranking lists report in depth what the colleges customers - the students themselves - tell us about their schools and their experiences at them.

Schools are chosen for inclusion in The Princeton Review primarily for their outstanding academics. They are evaluated based on institutional data collected, feedback from students attending them, and visits made by The Princeton Review staff over the years. The magazine also surveys independent college counselors, students and parents throughout the year.

The fact that The Princeton Review's Best 361 Colleges rankings result from surveys of students, rather than administrators, is very rewarding as these are the most important constituents a university serves, remarked Tony Collins, president of Clarkson University. Our selection as one of the Best Northeastern Colleges pairs us with the country's elite higher educational institutions. Our ranking by the same magazine in January as one of the 25 Most Connected Campuses is further proof that we are in the forefront of providing computational advancement to our students and faculty. These rankings are positive feedback that we are preparing our students to take leadership positions in today's global and technological world.

Clarkson University, located in Potsdam, New York, is a private, nationally ranked university with a reputation for developing innovative leaders in engineering, business, the sciences, health sciences and the humanities.
