According to a survey by The Princeton Review of over 110,000 students at 357 top colleges around the country, Hunter College ranks #4 in the diverse student population category. Hunter is also listed as one of the “best bargains” around, coming in #12 on the list of best bargains among public colleges.
Robert Franek, the lead author for the survey, talked about Hunter on Good Day New York, (Channel 5). “Hunter College has a very strong regional reputation. From the perspective of The Princeton Review, this has been growing rapidly into national recognition,” said Franek.
Lists of the top 20 ranking colleges in 64 different categories are in the 2005 edition of The Princeton Review’s annual college guide, “The Best 357 Colleges,” which goes on sale August 17. Rankings for 60 lists are based solely on student answers to survey questions: four lists factor in institutional data. A ranking list appearance does not reflect The Princeton Review’s opinion of the college, but a high consensus of opinion among the college’s surveyed students about it.
