For the ninth consecutive year, The Princeton Review has named Cal U among the best universities in the northeastern United States.Princeton Review logo.

The nationally known education services company selected Cal U as one of the 226 institutions profiled in the Best in the Northeast section of its “2014 Best Colleges: Region By Region” listing at www.PrincetonReview.com.

Nationally, 643 colleges — about 25 percent of the country’s 2,500 four-year institutions — were named as best in their region this year.

“We chose these as our 'regional best' colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs,” says Robert Franek, senior vice president/publisher of The Princeton Review.

Selections are based on data collected at hundreds of institutions, visits to schools, and the opinions of independent and high-school-based college advisers. The listing also includes comments made by students themselves.

In this year’s profile, Cal U students say campus facilities are “top-notch,” and mention the “wonderful” University housing, in particular. They report that Cal U’s small-town setting means the campus “feels safe,” yet it’s “only 45 minutes from the airport and downtown Pittsburgh.”

“It’s hard not to fall in love with it,” one student said.

The Princeton Review’s 226 “Best Northeastern Colleges” are located in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and the District of Columbia.
