Saint Michael’s College,Fiske Guide to Colleges in 2012 and the Princeton Review’s Best 376 Colleges 2012 edition. The Fiske Guide is widely sold as ‘the #1 best-selling guide to colleges.’ And the Princeton Review’s Best 376 Colleges is called ‘the Princeton Review’s flagship college guide.’ ‘We’re very pleased to be included in these guides; we know that these are among the most important resources for students and their parents in making college choices, so it’s wonderful for Saint Michael’s to be described in books that get into the hands of so many families across the nation,’ said Saint Michael’s President John J Neuhauser. Being selected for these guides in the first place is the big step, since each book selects only about 15 percent of the nation’s colleges and universities for inclusion in its publication. On top of being included, Saint Michael’s was deemed a ‘Best Buy’ in the Fiske Guide, one of 49 institutions so named. Saint Michael’s made the 6th best in the Princeton Review category ‘best gown-gown relations’ and was deemed ‘a best Northeastern college.’ Neither guide ranks the colleges overall from 1 to 376 (that’s left to U. S. News). These two guides simply select the schools they deem academically worthy for inclusion, based on interviews, visits and research. They also make sure to include schools located across the whole U.S. geography and schools of all sizes. Saint Michael’s is a Fiske Guide ‘Best Buy’‘All of the Best Buy schools fall into the inexpensive or moderate price category, and most have four- or five-star academics ratings,’ according to the Fiske Guide’s press release, which said further, that despite rising tuition rates, ‘there are some bargains to be found in higher education.’ The Fiske Guide Best Buys are ‘schools that offer outstanding academics with relatively moderate prices,’ Saint Michael’s among them. Founded and written by Edward B. Fiske, who was education editor of the New York Times for 17 years, the Fiske Guide has come to be widely regarded as the leading college search book. It has been published for more than 25 years, helping untold numbers of students, parents, and counselors gain an independent perspective on the distinctive personalities of ‘the best and most interesting colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain,’ according to the announcement of the book’s release.Saint Michael’s is #6 nationally in ‘good town-gown relations’ and ‘a best Northeastern college’ in Princeton Review’s Best 376 Colleges‘Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools, and the opinions of our staff and our 28-member National College Counselor Advisory Board,’ said Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP and author of The Best 376 Colleges.
