Princeton Review Ranks NJIT in "Best Colleges" Guide for 2015

NJIT ranks as one of the United States’ best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.  The education services company features NJIT in the 2015 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 379 Colleges. The book, which is The Princeton Review's flagship college guide, features only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges.

Rob Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP / Publisher and author of The Best 379 Colleges, noted, "NJIT offers outstanding academics, which is the chief reason we selected the university for the book. We base our choices primarily on data we obtain in our annual surveys of administrators at these schools and at hundreds of other colleges. We take into account input we get from our staff, our 27-member National College Counselor Advisory Board, our personal visits to schools, and the sizable amount of feedback we get from our surveys of students attending these schools. We also work to maintain a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character."

The Princeton Review profile states that, “NJIT is certainly a crown jewel within New Jersey’s public university system. Indeed, armed with a great reputation, NJIT offers undergrads quality academic programs at an affordable price.”

More comments about NJIT include the following.

• NJIT is definitely a technology-centered school.

• Provides plenty of advancement for high-achieving students.

• You must be dedicated and serious about learning…

• Students assert that it’s not hard to fit in.

• Find any type and every type of student here on campus.  Diversity is our forte.

The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically or from 1 to 377.  The 80-question survey asks students to rate their own schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences at them.
