The Princeton Review again has recognized California University of Pennsylvania as one of the best universities in the northeastern United States.

The nationally known education services company profiles California University in its “2018 Best Colleges: Region By Region” listing at www.PrincetonReview.com.

This is the 13th consecutive year that Cal U has been named among the “Best in the Northeast” schools. The 229 institutions profiled this year are “academically outstanding and well worth consideration” as part of a student’s college search, the website says.

The Princeton Review recognized 658 colleges and universities in five zones — Northeastern, Southeastern, Midwestern, Western and International — in its 2018 guide. These represent about 27 percent of the four-year, degree-granting institutions in the United States.

Schools are assessed for academic excellence based on data and information submitted by the school, as well as student surveys and other sources.

In their responses to Princeton review surveys, students noted that Cal U welcomes people from many backgrounds, including international and older adult students.

“From freshmen right out of local high schools, (to) students from Brazil, Canada and Europe, to older, nontraditional students pursuing a higher education … it is this unique blend of people that make Cal U special," one student said.

Another student noted the wide range of activities on campus, including "an on-campus free movie theater, a billiards room, and tons of clubs and sponsored activities."
