RIT is again recognized as one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review.

The education-services company features RIT in the just-published 2012 edition of its annual book The Best 376 Colleges.

Among colleges recognized for best career services, RIT ranks eighth this year. RIT has one of the oldest and largest cooperative-education programs in the nation.

RIT has also been named a “Best Buy” school in the 2012 revised and updated edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges. The guide groups public and private institutions into four price categories, from inexpensive to very expensive, but also suggests a number of schools that offer outstanding academics with relatively moderate prices. All of the “Best Buy” schools fall into the inexpensive or moderate price category and have stellar academics ratings.

In addition, RIT has been recognized by The Chronicle of Higher Education on the publication’s list of “Great Colleges to Work For 2011.” Among large four-year universities, RIT was specifically cited for its compensation and benefits. The university was also recognized for its on-site day care, health coaches, community garden and farmers’ market.
