The Princeton Review has again named Bryant University as one of its top institutions among the country's four-year colleges and universities.

Bryant University was highlighted in the newest edition of The Princeton Review’s annual guidebook for prospective college students, “The Best 389 Colleges: 2024 Edition” (Penguin Random House). 

The annual publication honors just 13% of America's four-year colleges and universities. Schools are chosen by The Princeton Review based on data collected from annual surveys of 2,000 higher-ed administrators on their institutions’ academic offerings. Inclusion on this prestigious list also relies heavily on the compilation of multiple years of student survey data. 

"Our selection of colleges for this publication reflects our high opinion of the schools: we recommend each one as academically outstanding," said Rob Franek, the editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review and lead author of “The Best 389 Colleges.” 

In addition to being profiled in the book and highlighted as one of the “Best Northeast” schools,  Bryant University also achieved a Top 25 ranking in three new categories, including Best College Library, Most Active Student Government, and Students Love Their School Teams. 

“We are honored to be named one of Princeton Review’s select institutions,” says Bryant University President Ross Gittell, Ph.D. “We are particularly proud that Bryant was recognized for our high-quality student engagement and support of students. Our strong school spirit rivals that of larger universities while having all the advantages that go along with attending a smaller institution, like personal attention and research opportunities for undergraduates.”

The Princeton Review’s top 25 lists are based on student reviews gathered in its surveys. The company poses 85 questions to 165,000 students across all the schools profiled. Overall, survey participants cited academics, financial aid, amenities, career services, and campus culture among their primary considerations when choosing a school. More information about the methodology is available here.

Since 1992, the guide has highlighted the best in undergraduate academics. It includes profiles of each school and other information designed to assist prospective students and their parents in making decisions about undergraduate enrollment.
