In the latest edition of its annual guide, the education services company recommends Manhattan College as one its Best 387 Colleges. 

The Princeton Review promotes the college for its prestigious academics, vibrant campus life, and “eclectic” student body. In the Princeton Review’s section about Manhattan College, students overwhelmingly  praise the "outstanding" professors who are "not only outstanding in fields they teach, but they also care very deeply for their students." 

It’s not just the professors that make the College such a consequential part of their campus experience. It’s their fellow students.   Students “are generally engaged in class discussions and are passionate about their studies and extracurricular activities,” according to Jasper classmates. Students are also proud that they get the chance to "make a ton of friends and build relationships that will last a lifetime." 

Only about 14% of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review’s most popular publications. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. 

The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students at the colleges who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.
