The Princeton Review chose the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from surveys of 2,000 college administrators about their institutions’ academic offerings. For its selection of profiled schools for the book, the company also reviews data from its surveys of college students attending the schools. Only about 14 percent of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the book.

“We salute Monmouth University for its outstanding academics, and its many other impressive offerings. We’re delighted to recommend it as an ideal choice for students searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of “The Best 388 Colleges.”  

Student feedback in The Princeton Review’s profile praises Monmouth University for its “great variety of course offerings and programs,” many of which prioritize “hands-on experience.” The profile also lauds foresight with numerous career- and success-minded initiatives and resources, particularly when it comes to tutoring or writing services.

Additional student perspectives about the Monmouth experience highlight the importance of small class sizes, with students noting that their professors are “passionate about the subject they teach” and strive to “connect what we learn in class to the real world.” Students also say that Monmouth is full of “motivated and creative people” who are “academically driven and work hard to be involved in many things on campus.”

Monmouth also appears on the ranking lists for Fire Safety Honor Roll and Best Northeastern Regional Colleges.

The school profiles and ranking lists in “The Best 388 Colleges” are posted online where they can be searched for free. “The Best 388 Colleges” is one of more than 150 Princeton Review books in a line published by Penguin Random House. The annual book and its rankings have been featured on NBC TODAY more than a dozen times and referenced by many other media from NPR to “The Wall Street Journal” and “The Chronicle of Higher Education.”
