The university is featured in the 2015 edition of education services company's annual college guide, "The Best 379 Colleges." Seton Hall was first recognized as a "Best College" by The Princeton Review in 1996.

Seton Hall University again joins an elite group of colleges and universities in the "Best Colleges" guide which this year includes only about 15% of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and only four colleges outside the U.S. The guide provides a detailed profile of the university with comments from student surveys that cover a wide range of topics, including professor assessments, library services and campus life. Seton Hall students praise the university for offering a "technologically connected" campus that "completely dedicates itself to its undergrads." Other comments from students include, "I got a fantastic scholarship," and "the school offers all the great things that come with a private education."

"Seton Hall is honored to be named among the best colleges in the nation," said Alyssa McCloud, Seton Hall's vice president of enrollment management. "This recognition adds to the long list of things we have to be proud of including our nearly two dozen Fulbright recipients within the last few years, an employment rate almost 20% higher than the national average and being recently named among the top five universities in the nation for providing internship opportunities. We offer our students the opportunity to excel in a rigorous academic environment with close faculty mentorship in small classroom settings. Seton Hall is a leading Catholic university on the rise and we are all very proud Pirates!"

Says Rob Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice present and publisher, "Seton Hall University offers outstanding academics, which is the chief reason we selected it for the book. We base our choices primarily on data we obtain in our annual surveys of administrators at these schools and at hundreds of other colleges. We take into account input we get from our staff, our 27-member National College Counselor Advisory Board, our personal visits to schools, and the sizable amount of feedback we get from our surveys of students attending these schools. We also work to maintain a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character." 

The Princeton Review "Best College" recognition comes on the heels of two other recent nationwide rankings for Seton Hall. The university has been named to both the Forbes magazine "America's Top Colleges" and the Money magazine "The Best Colleges for Your Money" lists.

"The Best 379 Colleges" is the 23rd edition of The Princeton Review's annual "Best Colleges" book. The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its test-prep courses, tutoring, books, and other student resources. Headquartered in Natick, MA, the company is not affiliated with Princeton University.
