Princeton Review Profiles Three USM Schools in 2016 "Best Colleges" Book

Adelphi, Md. (Aug. 4, 2015) -- The Princeton Review has named three University System of Maryland (USM) institutions among The Best 380 Colleges for 2016 in its annual compilation that profiles leading U.S. colleges.

The publication honored the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP), the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), and Salisbury University (SU) by including profiles of each university in its yearly guide to the best higher education institutions in the country.

UMCP, flagship institution of the USM, receives high marks for its academics, student life, and diversity. Comments in the official "Student Body" section of the Best 380 Colleges review take note of a culture of tolerance. "I don't think I have ever learned so much about different religions, cultures, orientations, or lifestyles. All of them are accepted and even celebrated."

In the Best 380 Colleges profile of UMBC, the publication salutes UMBC's dedicated and accessible faculty and a campus culture that values diverse perspectives and enthusiasm for learning.   

The review for Salisbury University spotlights the school's academic experience and variety of student life activities available. More on SU's selection can be read here.
