RIT named by Princeton Review as among nation’s best universities for value and career outcomes for students
2021 edition of 386 Best Colleges cites strong academics, top ranked programs
Rochester Institute of Technology is again considered one of the nation’s best universities for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education-services company features RIT in the just-published 2021 edition of its annual book The Best 386 Colleges.
Only about 13 percent of the nation’s 3,000 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review’s most popular publications. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators and surveys of 140,000 college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book, but instead reports 62 ranking lists of top 20 schools in the book in various categories important to prospective applicants and their parents. Among those categories, RIT was ranked 13th by its students for political awareness.
RIT also received high marks as a “best value college” which looks at academic rigor, affordability, and career outcomes for graduates, as well as among “colleges that create futures.” The university was also recognized as having one of the top ranked undergraduate game design programs in the nation (ranking fifth), as well as being one of the greenest colleges.
The Princeton Review is just one of several national rankings received by RIT.
