BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has been named one of 224 select colleges and universities in the Northeast by the Princeton Review.
“We are very pleased that Pitt-Bradford has again been recognized by the Princeton Review,” said Dr. Livingston Alexander, university president. “It’s gratifying when others realize what we already know: that we have excellent academic programs, dedicated faculty and staff, and a showcase campus.”
Pitt-Bradford was named in the Princeton Review’s The Best Northeastern Colleges as one of the best colleges in the Northeast, which includes select schools in the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.
Robert Franek, publisher and editorial director for the Princeton Review, said, “We believe these schools uphold the standards of our Best in the Northeast distinction and provide students with a wide breadth of excellent schools to consider. The schools in this book all have excellent academic programs.”
This is the second time Pitt-Bradford has been recognized by the Princeton Review. Last year, the university was named one of the 115 best colleges in the Mid-Atlantic.
The ratings were based on comments students made about college life, academics, the student body and campus life in surveys that were conducted during the 2003-04 academic year, along with institutional data collected and school visits conducted.
“I would like to stress,” one student who was surveyed said, “that Pitt-Bradford may be small, but this size brings about the unique, family-like atmosphere that you will not find in many other places.”
The students’ responses, along with additional information about Pitt-Bradford, can be found at the Princeton Review’s Web site at www.princetonreview.com.
The Princeton Review is an online resource for prospective college students, providing them information about colleges and universities throughout the United States. Additionally, the site offers prospective students advice on financial aid and tips on taking the SATs.
In addition to college admissions services, the Princeton Review, which was founded in 1981, offers test preparation services, which help college-bound students prepare for admissions tests, and K-12 services, which offer schools tailored print materials, online services, professional development seminars and live classroom instruction.
