University named one of "best Northeastern colleges” in 2007 edition
TOWSON, Md. (Sept. 5, 2006)—Towson University is one of 222 outstanding colleges and universities in the Northeast that The Princeton Review recommends to college applicants in the 2007 edition of The Best Northeastern Colleges. Its two-page profile, The Princeton Review touts TU’s location, small classes, individual attention, undergraduate majors and “solid facilities and resources.”
Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's vice president for publishing, "The schools in this book all have excellent academic programs. We chose them from several hundred Northeastern colleges and universities we considered based on institutional data we collect about them, our surveys of students attending them, and our visits over the years. We also worked to have a wide representation of schools grouped by size, selectivity, character and locale." The book includes institutions in 11 states and the District of Columbia.
The Princeton Review surveyed 58,000 students at the 222 colleges listed in this edition. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on topics ranging from their professors’ teaching ability to their opinion of campus food. They also answered questions about themselves, their fellow students and campus life.
