SUNY Geneseo again named by The Princeton Review as among the best colleges in the nation

GENESEO, N.Y.—Students at the State University of New York at Geneseo enjoy their campus experiences here so much that The Princeton Review has again listed the college among the best in the nation providing an outstanding undergraduate education.

SUNY Geneseo was listed in the education services company's 2008 edition of its annual book, "The Best 366 Colleges," which hits bookstores today—Tuesday, August 21. A mere 15 percent of the four-year colleges in America and two Canadian colleges are in the book, which contains a two-page profile about Geneseo with information on academics, admission, financial aid, the student body and campus life.

The Princeton Review survey asks students 80 questions about their school's academics, administration, campus life, student body and themselves. This year, 120,000 students responded to the survey, rating their colleges on several topics, ranging from best professors, administration, campus food, student body political learning, race/class relations, sports interests and other aspects of campus life.

This announcement follows on the heels of last week's U.S. News & World Report's 2008 edition of "America's Best Colleges." In that publication, Geneseo ranked No. 2 among the "Top Public Universities—Master's" for the Northern region and No. 11 among the "Best Universities—Master's" for the Northern region. U.S. News takes into account both public and private colleges and universities in the latter category.

The article notes Geneseo is the most selective of SUNY's undergraduate colleges and includes quotes from students about the numerous student clubs, free events, intramural sports and amazing sunsets in a bucolic setting.

Geneseo most recently was listed in the 2007 edition of the book. In April, the education services company profiled Geneseo in its "America's Best Value Colleges" for being one of the nation's best value undergraduate institutions.

The Princeton Review's book, in its 16th edition, doesn't rank colleges from 1 to 366. Student survey-based ranking lists of the top 20 colleges in more than 60 categories are available at www.PrincetonReview.com.
