August 17, 2023
Baruch College has once again been featured by The Princeton Review in its popular annual guidebook for prospective college students and their families – The Best 389 Colleges: 2024 Edition.
Baruch was included in this year’s edition of the guidebook for its overall excellence, based on survey and opinion data from 165,000 students who attend the 389 recognized schools.
For Baruch’s entry in the guidebook, The Princeton Review wrote that “students [at Baruch College] have access to internships, big companies, and…Wall Street,” and noted the “impressive number of career development programs on campus,” the diversity within the student body, and the valuable professional experience that both students and faculty bring into the classroom.
The Princeton Review lists colleges in alphabetical order rather than by numerical rank and uses student survey responses to spotlight colleges’ success in a host of specified categories. The company also names 25 top schools in 50 ranked categories that fall under the broader rubrics of Academics and Administration; Demographics; Extracurriculars; Politics; Quality of Life; Social Scene; and Town Life.
In these various specific categories, Baruch College was recognized for its affordability, its global alumni network, and the value of its location in the heart of New York City:
- Best Value Public Colleges Without Aid (#4)
- Best Value Public Colleges (#4)
- Best Alumni Network, Public Colleges (#20)
- College City Gets High Marks (#4)
Information on the survey process and methodology for the ranking lists is available on The Princeton Review’s website.
