CCNY students seek excellence.
The City College of New York is one of the 224 best colleges in the Northeast according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists CCNY in the Best in the Northeast section of its "2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region" website feature that posted on August 6, 2019.
The website feature salutes a total of 656 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends over five regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. The colleges that made the "Best in the Northeast" list are located in eleven Northeastern states and The District of Columbia.
In addition to City College’s selection as a Best Northeast College, The Princeton Review also lists CCNY as a Best Value and Green College in its website profile.
"We chose City College and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said The Princeton Review's editors. The company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits. "We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," editors noted.
According to those surveyed, “diverse students seeking excellence” all feel like they fit in at CIty College because “we each have something to bring to the table.” On an average day, “you can walk through the college and see people of all ages and races interacting with each other.” Most CCNY students are commuters, and many are “immigrant or come from an immigrant family,” but “most identify first and foremost as New Yorkers.”
