Recognized for outstanding opportunities in areas such as academics, faculty engagement, study abroad and career preparation, Hobart and William Smith were among only six institutions nationwide selected by The Princeton Review to join its “Colleges That Create Futures” admissions panel.
The Colleges joined the admissions program designed for prospective students after being named among the nation’s top colleges and universities for outstanding outcomes in The Princeton Review’s May 2017 release of its Colleges That Create Futures: 50 Schools That Launch Careers By Going Beyond the Classroom book. The in-depth profile on HWS highlights key points of distinction as well as additional curricular and extracurricular opportunities. The profile features quotes from HWS faculty, alums and anonymous student feedback.
Director of Admissions John Young recently joined “Colleges That Create Futures” event panels in Chicago, Ill. Senior Associate Director of Admissions and Director of Large Format Schools William Warder ’96 served on the panels in Atlanta, Ga.
The program was designed to highlight how to make the most of career services and internship opportunities, how to find hands-on learning opportunities across majors, and how to find the school that best fits.
The Colleges’ inclusion on the panel follows several other national recognitions, including being ranked by Princeton Review as No. 1 for study abroad opportunities, lauded as a top producer of Fulbright awards, cited among the best ROIs in higher education, selected as one of Sports Illustrated and Money magazine’s best schools for sports lovers, and featured as one of the top 50 greenest institutions.
