Queens College Named a Princeton Review "Best College" for the 30th Consecutive Year

-- Students Cite Quality, Affordability, and Diversity Among the School’s Strengths; QC Ranked a Best Regional College for the Northeast --

QUEENS, NY, September 9, 2020—The number of schools in the Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” roundup changes every year, but Queens College has remained a constant in every edition since the guide was first published in 1992—and this year marks the 30th time that the school has been named one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education by The Princeton Review. The renowned education services company features Queens College in the 2022 edition of its annual guide, The Best 387 Colleges, citing its high-quality academics, affordability and diversity. Queens College was once again ranked a Best Regional College for the Northeast in the 2022 edition.

“It comes as no surprise that Queens College has been recognized in every edition of the Princeton Review “Best Colleges” guide for our academic excellence, affordability, and accessibility to students of all backgrounds. For over 80 years, we have provided an unparalleled combination of equal access and opportunity for ambitious students — many of modest means — to advance toward successful and rewarding futures,” says Queens College President Frank H. Wu.

The results of student surveys from across the country on dozens of topics about their schools conducted by the Princeton Review round out the 2022 Best College profiles. Feedback from one Queens College student sums up the QC experience as, “Queens is about getting a valuable and quality education that does not drain you financially for the future.” Other positive comments from students refer to QC as the “… Harvard of CUNY.” The Macaulay Honors College and the Aaron Copland School of Music also both received positive recognition from students.

Positive feedback on faculty included descriptions of professors who “genuinely care about [students’] grades and well-being,” and “are very involved and passionate”; as one student puts it, “They won’t let me fall behind.”

One of The Princeton Review’s most popular guides, The Best 387 Colleges rankings are based on surveys of students at 387 top colleges that includes a wide representation by region, size, selectivity and character. It has been published annually since 1992. For more information on the rankings and methodology, click here.
