Irish university makes U.S. 'best' guide

DUBLIN, Ireland, June 6 (UPI) -- An Irish university has become the first outside North America to be listed in The Princeton Review's "best colleges," the guide announced Monday.

National University of Ireland Maynooth will be listed in "The Best 376 Colleges: 2012 Edition," which will be published in August.

"We chose National University of Ireland Maynooth as one of our best undergraduate colleges based on several criteria we consider when reviewing schools for this book," Princeton Review Vice President Robert Franek said. "First, we must have a high regard for their academic programs and other offerings. Second, our selections take into account institutional data we collect from the schools and the opinions of their students attending them whom we survey.

"We also greatly value the feedback we get about schools from our college-savvy staff across the United States, as well as from students, educators and parents who use our services and books."

Wayne Henry, Maynooth's director of international education, said "it is an honor" to be included.

The university says it is Ireland's fastest-growing college.
