For 10 years running, Baruch College is featured in The Princeton Review’s popular annual college guidebook. The “Best 388 Colleges“ in 2023 brings together survey results from more than 160,000 students across the country to find out what they love the most about these schools.
In this year’s edition, Baruch earned recognition for its academic excellence, its prime New York City location, overall value, and diverse campus activities.
Along with the guidebook, The Princeton Review also released its 31st annual Best Colleges ranking lists. Among public schools, Baruch placed:
- #1 in northeast and #8 nationwide for value
- “Top 20 Best Alumni Networks” in the U.S.
Baruch also ranked #7 on the “College City Gets High Marks” list.
Top Quality Education and Career Opportunities
In The Princeton Review’s profile of Baruch, survey participants note that the College provides students with an education that is “up to date with the current world.”
Baruch’s three schools — the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the Zicklin School of Business — all offer a wide variety of courses in which the professors “have first-hand experience in the material they are teaching students.” Located in Manhattan, Baruch “takes full advantage of being in the greatest city in the world” where students have “access to internships, big companies, and Wall Street.”
Baruch has connections with many companies in New York, which “creates even more opportunities” for students, with “an impressive number of career-developing programs on campus that are free of charge and readily available to all students.”
Vibrant Campus Life
At Baruch, students said there are “great clubs and events always happening around campus,” and “this is New York City, which means you can practically do anything with your day.”
The survey’s findings point out that New York City museums are free for students, and “of course the shopping and food are amazing.”
“The school’s Newman Vertical Campus on Lexington Ave. is a hive of activity…when a student’s eyes look at the breathtaking view of the building, ’It makes you feel proud to be a Baruchi!’”
