The University of New Orleans is one of the nation’s best higher education institutions, according to The Princeton Review. The Princeton Review features UNO in the new 2019 edition of its college guide, “The Best 384 Colleges.”
“It’s a great honor to once again be included in The Princeton Review’s annual guide to the best colleges,” said President John Nicklow. “The University of New Orleans is a major public research university that offers the student support and enrichment activities of a much smaller campus. Our engaged faculty and staff help our students explore their passions and prepare them for careers in their chosen fields.”
“We picked the 384 'best' colleges for our book primarily for their outstanding academics; we highly recommend each one," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief and the book's lead author. “However, we know applicants need far more than an academic rating or ranking to find the college that will be best for them.”
The book also lists 62 ranking lists to help students narrow their search. The Princeton Review tallied rankings for the 2019 edition based on its surveys of 138,000 students attending the 384 colleges in the book for 2017-18 and/or the previous two years. The survey asks students 84 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body and themselves.
In its profile on the University of New Orleans, The Princeton Review reports that students say the University is a “diverse environment that makes it a welcoming area to be” giving students “the opportunity to get an education that helps students to get a better future.” One student commented that, “My professors are always generous with their time and knowledge.” Another student characterized fellow students as “determined, hardworking and considerate.”
