Princeton Review Names RIT Among ‘Best 373 Colleges’
Only 15 percent of American colleges and universities are included in annual publication
Rochester Institute of Technology is again being 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 2011 edition of its annual book The Best 373 Colleges.
Approximately 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges are included in the book. It has two-page profiles of each school and ranking lists based on student responses that highlight the top 20 colleges in more than 60 categories.
In its profile on RIT, The Princeton Review quotes extensively from students at the university who were surveyed for the book. The publication credits RIT for “uniting creativity, innovation and applied knowledge.”
According to the summary of RIT student comments, “Across the board, there is an ‘emphasis on hands-on learning,’ and most majors require students to complete a cooperative work experience.” RIT has one of the oldest and largest cooperative education programs in the nation.
RIT is internationally recognized for academic leadership in computing, engineering, imaging technology, sustainability, and fine and applied arts, in addition to unparalleled support services for students with hearing loss. More than 16,800 full- and part-time students are enrolled in more than 200 career-oriented and professional programs at RIT.
