Le Moyne Elevated to The Princeton Review’s National Rankings
One of only five new colleges on the list, Le Moyne joins ranking attained by top 15% of U.S. colleges and universities
For the first time ever, Le Moyne College has been ranked by The Princeton Review as one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to “The Best 378 Colleges,” the 2014 college guide released on Aug. 6. In achieving the national ranking, Le Moyne joins the ranks of some of the most elite institutions in the U.S. In addition, Le Moyne is one of 45 institutions included in the guide's "Great Schools for Accounting Majors" list.
“This national recognition is a powerful affirmation of our upward trajectory over the past several years and the commitment we have made to our students and the entire Le Moyne community,” said Le Moyne President Fred Pestello. “Through their feedback, students are showing their satisfaction with the many key initiatives we have undertaken recently, including new academic programs, significant additions and upgrades to our facilities, and the hiring of world-renowned faculty. All our efforts are focused on providing an environment that allows students to flourish both today and throughout their lives. We are honored to have been selected for this distinction by our students and The Princeton Review.”
Among the 28 Jesuit institutions in the U.S., Le Moyne joins 18 others in the national ranking. The College was selected to the national list after being included in The Princeton Review’s Best Colleges in the Northeast list for the past four years.
The rankings are based on The Princeton Review's survey of students at colleges and universities across the nation. For those 378 institutions who made the national list, approximately 125,000 students (about 324 per campus on average) completed an 80-question survey and were asked to rate their schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences. Only the top 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in 2014 edition of the book, which includes detailed profiles of each college along with ratings for each school in eight categories.
