2014 has been an exciting year for Saint Joseph’s College. After being awarded $25,000 from the Ball Brothers Foundation in May and a $1 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. in January, the Princeton Review has named SJC and 159 other institutions to its “Best in the Midwest” section of its website feature, “2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region.”
The Princeton Review, a privately held education services company headquartered in Framingham, Mass, was founded in 1981 and is widely known for its test preparation programs and college and graduate school guides.
According to SJC students polled by the Princeton Review, the typical Puma is "friendly, non-judgmental, hardworking, but fun."
The Princeton Review has long been a leader in helping students achieve their education and career goals through test preparation services, tutoring and admissions resources, online courses, and more than 150 print and digital books published by Random House, Inc. The Princeton Review also partners with schools and guidance counselors worldwide to provide students with college readiness, test preparation, and career planning services.
