Awards

We don't like to brag. Well, OK, we like to just a little. But our campus has received several awards and accolades in the past few years.

Colleges of Distinction

In January 2013, we were named one of the best 10 regional campuses in the United States by college research website TheBestColleges

We were named by Student Horizons Inc. as a College of Distinction for engaging our students, having great teachers, providing a vibrant community and graduating students who go on to have successful careers and satisfying lives.

In 2011, U.S.News & World Report ranked us in the top tier of the region and in 2010 and 2008 named us one of the Best Baccalaureate Colleges in the North.

We were recognized, in part, because of our small classes and our student-to-faculty ratio.

The Princeton Review named us one of the Best Colleges in the Northeast in 201420132012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2006. The Princeton Review also recognized us as one of the Best 115 Colleges in the Mid-Atlantic in 2005. The Princeton Review bases its ratings on several factors, including comments by students. This year, one student said: "Pitt-Bradford offers small classes with individualized attention, professors who are always available, and a generally student-friendly atmosphere."Other students emphasized the friendliness of students with these comments: Princeton Seal
