Flagler among Princeton Review best colleges

August 21, 2012 | By More

Flagler College has once again been named one of the top colleges in the country in the 2013 edition of The Princeton Review’s book, “The Best 377 Colleges.”

Annually published since 1992, “The Best 377 Colleges” is one of 150 Princeton Review books published by Random House. In addition to its profiles of the colleges, the book includes lists of “Great Schools for 20 Popular College Majors” and of “150 Best Value Colleges” plus other resources.

“Each of our 377 best colleges offers outstanding academics,” says Robert Franek, the book’s author and Princeton Review Senior VP Publisher. “We don’t rank them 1 to 377, because they differ widely in their program offerings and campus culture, and that is their strength. Instead, we tally lists of the top 20 schools in 62 categories based entirely on what students at these schools tell us about their campus experiences. Our goal is not to crown one college ‘best’ overall, but to help applicants find and get in to the college best for them.”

About the rankings and survey

The book’s 62 ranking lists are based on surveys of 122,000 students (average 324 per campus) at the schools in the book during the 2011-12 and/or previous two school years. About 84% of the schools in the book appear on one or more its ranking lists. The 80-question survey asked students about their school’s academics, administration, campus life, student body, and themselves.
