PRINCETON REVIEW REPORTS FIRE SAFETY RATING SCORES FOR 1,104 COLLEGES FOR 2013
NEW YORK, August 20, 2012 – The Princeton Review—known for its education services helping students choose and get in to colleges—today reported its seventh annual "Fire Safety Ratings" of colleges. The Company tallied the rating scores for 1,104 institutions this year.
The "Fire Safety Rating" scores (reported on a scale of 60 to 99) appear in the Princeton Review profiles of the colleges on www.PrincetonReview.com and in the new 2013 editions of two Princeton Review guidebooks published by Random House, Inc: "The Complete Book of Colleges" published August 7, and "The Best 377 Colleges" on sale tomorrow, August 21, in a print edition and a new enhanced eBook edition.
The Princeton Review tallies its "Fire Safety Rating" scores based on data it collects from its surveys of administrators at the colleges concerning their on-campus housing fire safety and fire prevention practices and policies. (Criteria follow.)
The Princeton Review's "2013 Fire Safety Rating Honor Roll"
Twenty colleges received the highest possible score (99) in the Princeton Review rating tallies this year. The Company named these colleges to its "2013 Fire Safety Rating Honor Roll." The list, which appears in "The Best 377 Colleges" and on www.PrincetonReview.com includes:

*Schools with an asterisk are not profiled in "The Best 377 Colleges," but they are profiled in The Princeton Review's "The Complete Book of Colleges" and/or its website.
Said Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP / Publisher, "We salute the schools on this Honor Roll for their outstanding fire prevention programs. From installing fire alarm systems and smoke detectors to equipping a high percentage of their dorm rooms with sprinkler systems, these schools have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to safeguarding the lives of their students living in residence halls."
The Princeton Review developed its "Fire Safety Rating" in 2004-2005 in consultation with the Center for Campus Fire Safety (www.campusfiresafety.org), a non-profit organization devoted to reducing the loss of life from fire at our nation's campuses. Said Franek, "We created the rating for two reasons. One: Colleges have varying levels of fire safety and it is difficult for applicants and their parents to get comparative information about them. Two: We hope to increase the awareness of fire safety on campuses. We urge all college students—whether they live on-campus or off—to respect, follow, and take very seriously the fire safety rules of their residencies, frat/sorority houses, and dorms."
Criteria for The Princeton Review Fire Safety Rating
The Princeton Review tallied the "Fire Safety Rating "scores based on data it obtained in 2011-2012 from the colleges in response to an institutional survey that asked:
About The Princeton Review College Ratings and College Rankings
The Princeton Review college ratings are scores on a scale of 60 to 99 in up to eight categories that appear on college profiles on its site and college guidebooks. The ratings are based primarily on institutional data. Categories include Academics, Admissions Selectivity, Financial Aid, Fire Safety and Green. The Princeton Review explains the criteria for each rating at College Ratings
The Princeton Review college rankings are lists of schools in 62 categories (in rank order: 1 to 20) based entirely on the Company's surveys of 122,000 students attending the schools in its book, "The Best 377 Colleges." The survey asks students to rate their own schools on dozens of topics and report on their campus experiences at them. The Princeton Review explains the basis for each ranking at College Rankings
