Princeton Review Names Ramapo College to “2024 Best in the Northeast” List

September 5, 2023

Once again, The Princeton Review has named Ramapo College of New Jersey one of the best colleges and universities in the Northeast. Editors chose only 630 colleges, or about 25% of America’s four-year colleges, across seven regions for its Best Regional Colleges designations for 2024.

“Being ranked again by The Princeton Review should continue to signal to prospective students and their families that Ramapo’s commitment to student success is unrelenting,” said Dr. Christopher Romano, vice president of strategic enrollment, outreach, and engagement.  “Providing individualized attention and close faculty- student relationships not only distinguishes us in these rankings, but differentiates us in New Jersey and the regional landscape.”

Part of the methodology The Princeton Review employs is surveying students, who are asked not only about academics, but about campus life, study hours, and campus dining. Making this list is testimony to how Roadrunners feel about being students at Ramapo College, which is incredibly meaningful.

“It is important to note that we also consider what students attending the schools report to us about their experiences at them,” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief at The Princeton Review. Over the years, The Princeton Review has surveyed more than 2.9 million college students about their colleges. “We recommend Ramapo College of New Jersey as an ideal choice for students searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” added Franek. “We selected it—along with the other exceptional schools on our Best Regional Colleges list—primarily due to our high regard for their academics.” The Princeton Review surveys administrators at 2,000 colleges each year, requesting information about their school’s academic programs, campus policies, student services, amenities, and other topics.

The 150 colleges chosen by The Princeton Review for its “Best in the Northeast” list for 2024 are in eight states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
