For the 12th year in a row, The Princeton Review has named Cal U among the best universities in the northeastern United States. 

The nationally known education services company selected California University as one of the 228 institutions profiled in the Best in the Northeast section of its “2017 Best Colleges: Region By Region” listing at www.PrincetonReview.com.

The institutions named in the regional “best of” lists are considered “academically outstanding and well worth consideration” as part of a student’s college search, according to The Princeton Review.

In total, The Princeton Review recognized 649 colleges and universities in four regions — Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and West. These schools represent just 25 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.

The Princeton Review assesses schools for academic excellence, compiling the list based on student surveys, data collected through its administrator surveys, and the opinions of its staff and of college counselors and advisers.

Respondents said Cal U’s small- town setting means the campus “feels safe,” yet it’s “only 45 minutes from the airport” and downtown Pittsburgh.

“Cal U has a beautiful campus, and the facilities are top-notch. It’s hard not to fall in love with it,” one student wrote.

Students also raved about the university’s spacious residence halls: “The housing is perfect, like your very own place!”

The “good mix of every kind of person” on campus also drew praise, along with the school’s services for commuter students. “Cal U is very good for students who want to commute, especially people who are non- traditional students,” one student said.

The Princeton Review’s 228 “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.
