Princeton Review: Clarkson University One of Best Colleges
We chose schools for this book primarily for their outstanding academics, says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's VP, Publishing. "We evaluated them based on institutional data we collect about the schools, feedback from students attending them, and our visits to schools over the years. We also consider the opinions of independent college counselors, students, and parents we hear from year-long. Finally, we work to have a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character."
Clarkson is consistently among the schools ranked well in both the Princeton Review's "Best Colleges" and U.S. News & World Report's annual issue of "Best Colleges," where Clarkson was listed Monday as a top tier national university. US News also ranked the Clarkson School of Business Supply Chain Management Program as #11 in the nation.
In December, Princeton Review, along with PC Magazine, ranked Clarkson as the 14th most connected campus in the nation. This "The Top Wired Colleges" list honors colleges with the most comprehensive - in terms of size, scope and quality - computing and technology offerings. The criteria focused on three main areas of technology - Academics, Student Resources, and Infrastructure.
The ranking lists in the 2008 edition of "Best 366 Colleges" are based on the Princeton Review's survey of students attending the 366 colleges in the book. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book 1 to 366 in any single category, nor do the rankings reflect The Princeton Review's opinion of the schools.
