Muhlenberg College is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review –  and the department of theatre and dance continues to be a nationally top-ranked leader in the discipline, ranking eleventh in the country.

The education services company features the school in the new 2014 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 378 Colleges” (Random House / Princeton Review, $23.99, August 6, 2013).

Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and only four colleges outside the U.S.A. are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review's flagship college guide. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in the book in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 126,000 students attending the colleges.

In its profile on Muhlenberg, The Princeton Review praises it for its “friendly, tight-knit community” and quotes extensively from students the Company surveyed for the book.  Among their comments: “students fit in very well with all types of groups since our school is so accepting;” the College “definitely offers a rich amount of courses that will prepare you for your future and open your mind to possibilities;” and it has “many resources to help you with a variety of situations that may arise.”  Professors are regarded as approachable which “provides for an engaging classroom environment that lets students push past the direct facts of the material and learn more about what the material means for the world.”

The Princeton Review's school profiles and ranking lists in "The Best 378 Colleges" are posted at PrincetonReview.com.

"The Best 378 Colleges" is the 22nd edition of The Princeton Review's annual "Best Colleges" book.  It is one of 150 Princeton Review books published by Random House in a line that also includes test-prep guides for the ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and AP exams, plus "The Complete Book of Colleges," and "Paying for College Without Going Broke."
