For the 15th consecutive year, Princeton Review highlights UNCG among the country’s best universities for undergraduate education.
The education services company features UNCG in the just-released 2014 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 378 Colleges.” Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and four colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in Princeton Review’s flagship college guide.
“I am proud to see UNCG included once again among Princeton Review’s ‘Best Colleges,’ ” said Chancellor Linda P. Brady. “Engaged learning and a supportive environment for students are the heart of this university. We value students who want to challenge themselves, engage in research that addresses local and global issues, and serve their communities.”
Rankings are based on institutional data, visits to schools over the years, feedback from students attending the schools, and the opinions of Princeton Review’s staff and its 30-member National College Counselor Advisory Board. Princeton Review does not rank the ‘Best Colleges’ numerically.
UNCG students have been awarded nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships in recent years, including Gates Cambridge, Luce, Goldwater and Fulbright awards.
