Allegheny College has once again been named one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education by The Princeton Review. The education services company features Allegheny in “The Best 384 Colleges,” the 2019 edition of its flagship college guide.
In its profile on Allegheny, The Princeton Review quotes extensively from students surveyed for the guide. Students praised Allegheny for its small class sizes and the opportunity “to mix and match majors and minors from different disciplines.” And faculty at the college are “dedicated to helping [students] succeed and they genuinely want to see [students] do well.”
Students also described Allegheny as a place where “everyone can find something [they’re] passionate about” and noted that the “vast majority of people are involved with more than one organization on campus and are extremely invested in their studies and the school.” In addition, the college’s required Senior Comprehensive Project was lauded for helping “to bolster resumes and prep students for graduate schools.”
One of The Princeton Review’s most popular guides, “The Best 384 Colleges” rankings are based on surveys of 138,000 students at 384 top colleges that include a wide representation by region, size, selectivity and character. More information on the rankings and methodology is available on The Princeton Review website.
Allegheny also was featured earlier this year in The Princeton Review’s “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.” The Princeton Review evaluated more than 40 data points to tally ROI (return on investment) ratings of the colleges that determined its selection of the 200 schools for the book. Topics covered everything from academics, cost, and financial aid to graduation rates, student debt, alumni salaries and job satisfaction.
