Eastern has again been cited as one of the best colleges in the Northeast, according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review. Eastern is one of 226 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its "Best in the Northeast" section of its website feature, "2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region," that posted Aug. 20 on PrincetonReview.com.
"The University community is honored to be included in The Princeton Review's 'Best Colleges in the Northeast' for the third time in four years," said Eastern President Elsa Núñez. "What is most gratifying is that much of this recognition can be attributed to the survey of our students that The Princeton Review conducted. Our students seem to appreciate the residential, liberal arts experience that we offer -- small classes, personal attention from faculty, and a vibrant campus life. The fact our students feel Eastern is affordable is also important to families in these challenging economic times."
For this project, student comments in the profile on Eastern are "A smaller school with smaller classes"; Eastern's "thorough liberal arts curriculum" is conducted within a "comfortable learning environment"; and "I went to academic advising and I was amazed about how fast I was helped and it actually made a positive difference in my work." The campus life was also highlighted: "There are always activities gong on such as movies, parties, crafts and comedians. You will never be bored at this school."
