Princeton Review Rates Robert Morris University
Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Princeton Review editors made their selections based on data the company collected from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, as well as its staff visits to schools over the years, and the perspectives of college counselors and advisors whose opinions the company solicits. The ranking is also based on results from a survey taken by RMU students about their overall experience at RMU, including coursework and academic classes, extracurricular activities, administration, other students and personal well-being.
The Princeton Review report commends RMU for its multiple accreditations and its Student Engagement Transcript.
"We chose Robert Morris University and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their excellent academics and what students enrolled at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences " said Robert Franek, the Princeton Review's senior vice president of publishing.
"I am delighted to see the acknowledgment from students that RMU is providing an engaging, student-centered educational experience, said John Michalenko, vice president of the Office of Student Life. "We take great pride in offering vast opportunities for personal and professional development, and the survey shows that our students feel the same."
The Princeton Review also scores the schools on its "Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists in six categories. The scores – which are ratings on a scale of 60 to 99 – appear on the school profiles. They are tallied primarily from institutional data the company obtained from the colleges. Some also factor in student survey data.
The 225 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Northeast" 2016 list are located in eleven states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont -- and the District of Columbia.
