The Princeton Review on October 2 announced the "Top 25 Most Connected Campuses," naming Bentley #3 in the country based on survey responses from more than 100,000 college students and data from campus administrators.

According to The Princeton Review, the survey was designed to illustrate the depth and breadth of technology on today"s campus. Topping the list is Stevens Institute of Technology, followed by Wake Forest University, with Georgia Tech tied at #3 with Bentley--The Business University.


"Students we heard from at over 600 campuses this year place a high value on having access to technology as part of their college experience," said Robert Franek, editorial director, The Princeton Review. For some, it's a quality of life issue. For others, it's essential to their areas of study. But by and large, students know that honing their tech skills in college can be crucial in their job searches and careers after college."

The Princeton Review looked at the technological sophistication of 351 outstanding U.S. colleges."To differentiate between the very best campuses--the top 25--" the publication considered additional data such as special programs or courses available specifically for or on handheld devices, courses in new areas of technology and a school web site that supports streaming video and audio.


"We are pleased to exclusively offer the complete list of all 351 connected campuses online, said Michael Noer, executive editor news, Even if your school didn't make the Top 25, you can find out how it stacks up using our unique interactive tools."
