UMass Boston Featured in The Princeton Review’s Regional Ranking

The University of Massachusetts Boston is one of the featured schools on The Princeton Review’s “Best in the Northeast” list for 2017.

UMass Boston is also one of the 228 northeastern colleges highlighted in the "2017 Best Colleges: Region by Region" web feature. This is the second year in a row UMass Boston has been named to this list, and the fourth time overall.

The schools on the list are considered to be outstanding academically and deserving of strong consideration in a college search. The Princeton Review, an education services company widely known for its tutoring and test prep programs and college and graduate school guides, selected schools for the list based on academics, staff visits, and student surveys.

“We’re very happy to be recognized by The Princeton Review again this year,” Chancellor J. Keith Motley said. “Our faculty are to be commended for challenging our students academically, and our students are to be honored for rising to that challenge. They always make us proud.”

UMass Boston is also one of The Princeton Review’s 353 Green Colleges.
