Princeton Review and Forbes continue to give UNCG high marks.

For the 14th consecutive year, Princeton Review lists UNCG among the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education. The education services company features the school in the just-released 2013 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 377 Colleges.” UNCG also appears on Princeton Review’s regional 2013 Best Colleges in the Southeast listing.

Forbes lists UNCG among its 2012 Top 100 Best Buy Colleges. UNCG ranks 43rd on the Forbes list.

“We are delighted to be so highly regarded by Princeton Review and Forbes. These honors attest to UNCG’s continuing commitment to offer a high-quality, high-impact educational experience at an affordable cost,” said Chancellor Linda P. Brady.

Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and three colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in Princeton Review’s flagship college guide.

Rankings are based on institutional data, visits to schools over the years, feedback from students attending the schools, and the opinions of Princeton Reviews’s staff and its 30-member National College Counselor Advisory Board. Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically or from 1 to 377 in any category.

“UNCG aims to be a first-choice university for high-achieving students who demand a challenging learning environment that inspires a quest for discovery, the desire to see the world from multiple perspectives, and the confidence to find one’s place in it,” said Brady.

UNCG students have been awarded nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships in recent years, including Gates Cambridge, Luce, Goldwater and Fulbright awards.

Forbes calculates its Best Buy College rankings by taking the overall quality rank on Forbes’ annual list of America’s Top Colleges and dividing that number by the school’s tuition (in-state where applicable) and additional fees. Forbes’ “quality rank” assesses each school in the areas of teaching, career prospects, graduation rates and the levels of debt graduates tend to amass.
