The Princeton Review, an educational research firm that offers tutoring, test prep and college admission services, has again named Albright College a Best College in the Northeast. Albright is one of only 224 schools earning honors in the Northeast.

The Princeton Review’s “2021 Best Colleges: Region by Region” is based on surveys of 143,000 current college students, and features schools that are “considered academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.” Featured colleges and universities are broken into five zones: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West and International.

Students shared with the Princeton Review that Albright College provides them with small classes as well as bountiful internship and study abroad opportunities. Undergraduates report that their professors truly “care about their students” and “have the potential to become great resources for references and scholastic colleagues.”

Students describe the college’s student body as “welcoming,” “engaged” and “creative.”

“When a visitor looks confused or lost, someone will walk up to them and offer help and guidance,” said one student. “If someone is struggling with their hands full or looks upset or hurt most students would be willing to stop and offer a helping hand or a listening ear.” Another student concludes, “It is nice to walk across campus and feel like you’re at home.”

Albright College has appeared on the Princeton Review’s Best Northeast Colleges list 16 times in the last 17 years.
