CANTON -- St. Lawrence University has been named one of the nation’s best undergraduate institutions in The Princeton Review, according to a university spokesperson.
The education services company features St. Lawrence in the 2015 edition of its annual college guide The Best 379 Colleges. Only about 15 percent of 2,500 four-year colleges in the United States are profiled. The Princeton Review's flagship college guide includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories based on its surveys of 130,000 students attending the colleges, the SLU spokesperson said.
Students surveyed by The Princeton Review praised St. Lawrence it for its “high-quality of professors and facilities” and for boasting “a science program that is one of the strongest among liberal arts schools,” according to the spokesperson. The book quotes extensively from St. Lawrence students, who mention the University’s small classes sizes and dedicated faculty. One student said, “the professors here are truly exceptional … they put so much time into ensuring you grow as a scholar and as a person.” The guide book also focuses on St. Lawrence’s dedication to sustainability and highlights its “meaningful impact in communities on both local and global scales,” the SLU spokesperson said.
