The Princeton Review Names Delaware Valley University to the 2022 'Best in the Northeast' List
The University has been honored by the Princeton Review for twelve consecutive years.
Delaware Valley University, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, has been named one of the best schools in the Northeast by The Princeton Review in the new 2022 list. This is the twelfth consecutive year that DelVal has been selected for the list. The well-known education services company lists DelVal in the Best in the Northeast section of its "2022 Best Colleges: Region by Region" website feature that was posted on Aug. 31, 2021. Schools are selected based on factors such as academic excellence and student satisfaction.
The "2022 Best Colleges: Region by Region" feature names schools in five zones-the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International-that Princeton Review recommends as "regional bests." These schools are a select group. They are listed alphabetically and are not ranked in order.
"We chose Delaware Valley University and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Princeton Review Editor-in-Chief Robert Franek.
He noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.
"We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," he added.
"Delaware Valley University is honored to be consistently recognized by The Princeton Review for the quality of education we provide," said DelVal Interim President Dr. Benjamin Rusiloski. "Our career outcomes rate, which indicates the number of students either employed or in graduate school within one year of graduation has climbed to 94.4 percent since we launched our award-winning experiential learning program. What is more rewarding than accolades is seeing our students getting strong job offers and being accepted into top graduate programs."
The University was also recently highlighted in an episode of a new national TV show, "The College Tour."
"This year, we had the opportunity to showcase our hands-on learning, small caring community and award-winning experiential learning program in an episode of 'The College Tour,'" said DelVal Vice President for Admission Kathy Payne. "The episode captures what it is like to be an Aggie and, I encourage you to watch it to hear directly from our students about why DelVal is consistently named a top school."
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their schools on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site.
Among the student descriptions in the DelVal profile are "opportunities that you cannot find at other schools," and "hands-on." Students said the small class sizes allow them to "create relationships with the professors in the classes and network for different careers."
