For the 30th consecutive year, Queens College in Flushing has been named one of the country’s best institutions for undergraduate education by The Princeton Review.

Queens College, located at 65-30 Kissena Blvd., is featured in The Princeton Review’s 2022 annual edition, “The Best 387 Colleges,” citing its high-quality academics, affordability and diversity. The college was once again ranked a “Best Regional College for the Northeast” in the edition.

The college’s recognition in every edition of the Princeton Review for its “excellence, affordability, and accessibility to students of all backgrounds,” comes as no surprise to Queens College President Frank Wu. 

“For over 80 years, we have provided an unparalleled combination of equal access and opportunity for ambitious students — many of modest means — to advance toward successful and rewarding futures,” Wu said. 

The Princeton Review’s list of best colleges is based on ratings from student surveys across the country on dozens of topics about their schools that round out the 2022 Best College profiles.

One Queens College student described their experience as, “Queens is about getting a valuable and quality education that does not drain you financially for the future.”

Other students referred to Queens College as the “Harvard of CUNY.”  The Macaulay Honors College and the Aaron Copeland School of Music also received positive reviews from students. 

In regards to the college faculty, students included descriptions of professors who “genuinely care about [students’] grades and well-being,” and “are very involved and passionate.” 

One student said, “They won’t let me fall behind.” 

Queens College enjoys a national reputation for its liberal arts and sciences and pre-professional programs. With its extensive range of graduate and undergraduate degrees, honors programs, research opportunities, and internship placements, the college serves more than 20,000 students, mentored by an award-winning faculty, according to its website.

One of The Princeton Review’s most popular guides, The Best 387 Colleges rankings are based on surveys of students at 387 top colleges that includes a wide representation by region, size, selectivity and character. It has been published annually since 1992.
