CSULB has been ranked among the “Best in the West” by The Princeton Review in its Best 361 Colleges – 2007 Edition.
Recently released, the ranking lists compiled for this edition are based on surveys of 115,000 students at the 361 schools in the book during the 2005-06 academic year and/or the previous two school years. The 80-question survey asked students about their school’s academics, campus life, administration, student body and themselves.
“What is so significant about this ranking is the fact that it is based on the opinions of those we serve – the students at Cal State Long Beach,” said President F. King Alexander. “Students’ opinions are important to consider because if we’re not doing a good job of serving them, then they are going to go somewhere else. But, our students feel very positive about The Beach, and that is a direct result of the outstanding efforts by the faculty and staff on this campus.”
CSULB is one of 123 schools receiving The Princeton Review’s “Best in the West” designation. This year, student opinion data from a total of 656 schools is featured on the “Best Colleges: Region by Region” section of www.PrincetonReview.com.
In addition, The Princeton Review has posted a list of the schools in the book on its Web site at www.PrincetonReview.com.
