Pitzer College Named Among ‘The Best 366 Colleges’ in the 2008 Edition of the Princeton Review
(September 20, 2007) - Pitzer College has been named as one of the best colleges in the United States by the 2008 edition of the Princeton Review.
Pitzer undergrads tend to be "passionate, creative, dynamic, and socially involved." They possess a love of learning and, according to one student, "No one tells you what to do or how much to read; everyone just does it because they want to, because they enjoy the material, and because they want to learn."
Pitzer students also enjoy a wealth of entertainment and enrichment options. A student is quoted as saying, "Pitzer is about constantly questioning the status quo and the mainstream, constantly thinking about better alternatives or creative solutions, and constantly reevaluating the way you see yourself, your community, and the world around you."
Princeton Review's special listing section ranks Pitzer as follows in respective categories:
#8 - lots of race/class interaction
#8 - most politically active
#16 - best classroom experience
Princeton Review ranks colleges and universities based on institutional data collected about the schools, feedback from students attending them, and visits to schools over the years. They also consider the opinions of independent college counselors, students and parents. Finally, they strive to achieve a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character.
