Guides applaud UD’s academics
The University has received high marks in fall higher education publications, listed among the Princeton Review’s The Best 378 Colleges and in the Fiske Guide to Colleges.
The Best 378 Colleges lauds UD as providing a “well-rounded” college experience, with “top notch” academics and “vibrant campus life.”
Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and just four colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in the book, which is the flagship college guide of the Princeton Review, an education services company. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories.
In the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014, UD is hailed as “a public gem that boasts more than 135 solid academic programs, from engineering to education.” Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide is a selective, subjective and systematic look at more than 300 of the best and most interesting colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain.
Colleges featured in the Fiske Guide to Colleges were selected with several broad principles in mind, beginning with academic quality.
