On Monday, the Princeton Review released the 2016 edition of its college rankings lists, “The Best 380 Colleges“. The book lists, in no particular order, the 380 schools that comprise the top 15 percent of all four-year colleges in the nation, and includes eight more best rankings lists, such as “Best Northeastern”, “Green Colleges”, and “200 Colleges That Pay You Back.” In addition, the book contains a variety of lists that reveal the top 20 colleges in 62 categories covering nine general areas, from “Best College Dorms” to “Best College Theater.”

The Princeton Review rankings are based on surveys of 136,000 students who attend the 380 colleges in the book. These students were asked 80 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body, and themselves in which numerical values were gathered to compare student opinions. The Princeton Review doesn’t rank the schools overall in its list, but rather, the list shows that all 380 schools are good.

Since 1992, the Princeton Review has published these college rankings each year in its annual Best Colleges guide. See which SUNY schools were included in the top lists for the 2016 Best Colleges by Princeton Review below:
