SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY NAMED ONE OF 98 GREAT SCHOOLS TO CONSIDER

           SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – The nationally respected Princeton Review has named Slippery Rock University one of the 98 best universities in the nation’s six-state, mid-Atlantic region.

          “Princeton Review’s ranking are considered especially important because of the influence current students have on the rankings,” said Interim President Robert Smith.

          SRU students reported that the environs of the university “provides an academic setting for those serious about learning,” and they praised the small classes sizes and “excellent tutoring center, the writing center and resident hall study groups.”

          The review also reported a “marked friendliness pervades the Slippery Rock atmosphere.”

          In writing to Smith, author Robert Franek noted “please know that it was a great pleasure reviewing your school’s credentials; you have much to brag about.” The mid-Atlantic region includes Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

          “To have us included in this list, with some very big names, is certainly something our entire campus community and alumni can be proud of,” Smith said.

          Published by Random House Princeton Review Books, the mid-Atlantic college report is part of a five-book, regional series. Others volumes review colleges in the Midwest, Northeast, Southeast and West. The rankings are based on factual information and student interviews. The series is available at bookstores across the U.S. and on line at www.princetonreview.com
