Evergreen among Princeton Review’s Best Colleges

Published: August 22, 2012

The Evergreen State College Featured in the Princeton Review Book, "The Best 377 Colleges" - 2013 Edition

The Evergreen State College is one of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2013 edition of its annual college guide, "The Best 377 Colleges."

Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review's flagship college guide. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories.

Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP / Publisher and author of "The Best 377 Colleges," "We commend Evergreen for its outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our selection of schools for the book.  Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools, and the opinions of our staff and our 30-member National College Counselor Advisory Board.  We also work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character."
