On August 5, 2013, the Princeton Review published their 2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region list. This list was divided into four areas—Western, Midwestern, Southeastern and Northeastern regions. Among the distinguished institutions, Assumption College was featured in the Best in the Northeast List, which mentions 224 other colleges. This list focuses specifically on 11 states in the northeastern region where 36 of the colleges mentioned are from Massachusetts, six of them in Worcester, Mass.
The selection process for the Princeton Review’s Region by Region list is one that goes through objective and subjective processes. According to its website, the selection of a school is dependent on two specific criteria.
