Xavier University is included for the first time in this year’s edition of “The Best 357 Colleges,” the prestigious annual best colleges guidebook from the Princeton Review. The 2005 edition is set to be released in August.
“We regard the schools in this book as the cream of the crop institutions for undergraduate education,” says Robert Franek, assistant vice president for publishing of the Princeton Review.
“Only about 10 percent of the colleges in America and only two Canadian colleges are in the book. Each one offers an outstanding academic program. We select schools for the guide based on our knowledge of them, on data we review about them and on the opinions of students and parents we talk to and survey.”
