Stan State on Princeton Review Top 385 Colleges list for 14th Straight Year

August 05, 2019


For the 14th consecutive year, Stanislaus State has been selected as one of the country’s top 385 colleges by The Princeton Review.

Stan State joins San Diego State and Sonoma State as the only members of the 23-campus California State University system on the list, which also includes nine University of California campuses. Stan State and UC Merced are the only universities located in the Central Valley to be honored by Princeton Review this year.

“Even after 14 straight years, having a spot on this list is not something we take for granted,” said Stanislaus State President Ellen Junn. “This is a great honor for Stan State, and making the Princeton Review top colleges list year after year is a grand tribute to our students, faculty and staff. We are a campus of choice for the students of our region and our faculty is focused on preparing our students to be future leaders.”

The Princeton Review, which is not affiliated with Princeton University, selects colleges based on their survey of the institutions’ academics. The company collects data and seeks student and faculty input from 138,000 students, representing 2,500 schools, for the lists and rankings included in its annual guide to colleges, first published in 1992. Only about 15 percent of America’s four-year colleges are profiled in the book.

In hand with being named to the national honor roll, Stan State also was included on The Princeton Review’s list of top 127 universities in the West.
