Princeton Review Names Lebanon Valley College a “Best Northeastern College”
10.09.13 |
For the 11th consecutive year, Lebanon Valley College has been named a “Best Northeastern College” according to The Princeton Review, and is one of 225 institutions included in that category.

The rankings are based on surveys of 126,000 students (average 333 per campus) at schools in the book in 2012-13 and/or the previous two school years. The survey asks students 80 questions about their school's academics, administration, student body, and themselves. The ranking methodology uses a five-point Likert scale to convert qualitative student assessments into quantitative data for school-to-school comparisons.

LVC students responded with statements ranging from "LVC is a challenging school that strives to provide an excellent education and college experience for its students," to LVC offers "an opportunity to study with some of the best professors and fellow students in an intimate environment." One English major said, "I love having the opportunity to closely work with a professor who knows your name, interests, and abilities." Colleges selected had to meet standards for academic excellence within that school's respective region while allowing The Princeton Review to survey anonymously its students.

The 225 colleges chosen for the "Best in the Northeast" list are located in 11 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont, and the District of Columbia.
