Neumann University is one of the best colleges and universities in the Northeast according to The Princeton Review. The education services company selected the school as one of 218 institutions it profiles in the "Best in the Northeast" section on its web site and in its book, The Best Northeastern Colleges: 2011 Edition.
In its profile on Neumann, The Princeton Review describes the university as delivering “an environment that fosters personal and academic development” and favoring “applicants who demonstrate a high degree of potential.”
“The Princeton Review got it exactly right,” said Dennis Murphy, vice president for enrollment and student affairs at Neumann. “We offer students a uniquely personal experience, one that provides them with the opportunity to grow intellectually, socially and ethically. As one of the most affordable private colleges in the area, we’re also committed to making higher education accessible to families in the northeast and beyond.”
According to Robert Franek, vice president of The Princeton Review, "We chose the schools we name as our 'regional best' colleges primarily for their excellent academic programs. We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences on our 80-question student survey. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible for our regional lists."
The 218 colleges included in the list for the Northeast are located in eleven states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont. The District of Columbia is also in the region. The Princeton Review also designated 152 colleges in the Midwest, 120 in the West, and 133 in the Southeast as "regional best" colleges. The 623 colleges named to "regional best" lists represent about 25% of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
For this project, The Princeton Review asks students to rate their own schools on several issues -- from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food -- and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Some student comments included in the profile on Neumann University are “every professor and administrator in the Neumann community is so friendly and very approachable” and “the volunteer opportunities and events held on this campus are remarkable.”
