Flagler College has once again been named a top college in The Princeton Reviewâ€™s latest college guidebook, â€œThe Best 380 Colleges.â€ The 2016 edition release date is Aug. 4.
Only about 15 percent of Americaâ€™s 2,500 four-year colleges are included, and Flagler has made it into the book since 2003.
â€œEvery college in our book has outstanding academics,â€ said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP-Publisher.Â â€œWhile our purpose is not to crown one college academically ‘best’ overall or to rank the schools 1 to 380 on any single topic, our lists provide direct student feedback on the schools’ campus culture, program offerings and cost.â€
Franek said selections are based on surveys of 136,000 students at the 380 colleges, as well as surveys of administrators, observations from their school visits, as well as opinions of their staff and 23-member National College Counselor Advisory Board.
The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its test-prep courses, tutoring, books and other college admissions resources. The company does not rank the colleges in its guide.
