Humboldt State University was one out of the 127 schools in the west that made it onto The Princeton Review's "Best in the West" list of top universities.

"We chose HSU and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief. "We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," Franek says.

According to the release, The Princeton Review considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.

Humboldt State University Named to The Princeton Review’s 'Best in the West' List 

Humboldt State University is one of the 127 best colleges in the West according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists HSU in the Best in the West section of its "2021 Best Colleges: Region by Region" feature

The feature salutes 655 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends in five regions: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. The colleges that made the "Best in the West" list are located in 15 Western states. The schools in each region are listed in alphabetical order by school name, and not ranked.

"We chose HSU and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," says Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief. He noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.

"We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," Franek says. 

The Princeton Review survey of HSU asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review website.

Students said HSU offers "a damn good education for a good price," is "a place to be yourself and to learn all about what you want to do in life, and have a great time doing it!" Students also say HSU has “dedicated professors” and “small class sizes” that provide “amazing opportunities.”   

The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its tutoring, test-prep, books, and other student resources. Headquartered in New York, NY, it is not affiliated with Princeton University.
