BRADFORD, Pa. – For the 13th consecutive year, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is one of the best colleges in the Northeast, according to The Princeton Review, which cited the campus’s friendly environment, small class sizes, academic offerings and professors who are easy to engage with.

“I’m delighted that Pitt-Bradford has been recognized once again for the excellent and enriching academic programs we provide to our students in a friendly, supportive and personalized campus environment,” said Dr. Livingston Alexander, Pitt-Bradford’s president.

The nationally known education services company recommends the university as one of 228 institutions on its “Best in the Northeast” list for 2017. This list is part of the company’s website feature, “2017 Best Colleges: Region by Region” that was posted on Monday.

Ratings are based on an 84-question survey of 143,000 college students on hundreds of campuses. The survey asks students about their schools’ academics, administration, student body and themselves.

The report rates colleges in eight areas. Pitt-Bradford rated highest in fire safety, financial aid and admissions selectivity.

“Students rave about the familial atmosphere, which is ‘friendly, welcoming, and accepting of all types,’” The Princeton Review writes in its profile of the campus.

“The professors at this university are extremely well versed in their specific fields of study,” one student reported.

Another student said that there “are a lot of activities put on by the school and by the large number of clubs.”

Alexander added, “What makes this recognition even more noteworthy is that it is based on input from our students, which illustrates that they value the close-knit and student-centered campus community.”

More than 94 percent of Pitt-Bradford students receive some form of financial aid through grants, loans, work study or scholarships. The Princeton Review said that the average amount of each freshman scholarship and grant package is $13,275.

The acceptance rate at Pitt-Bradford, according to The Princeton Review, is 58 percent, with 21 percent of students entering with a high school grade point average of more than 3.75.
