The College was listed in the Best in the Northeast section of the Review’s “2021 Best Colleges: Region by Region” website. The feature salutes 655 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends over five regions: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. Collectively, the colleges on The Princeton Review’s “regional best” lists for 2021 constitute just 23 percent of the nation's 2,800 four-year colleges. The schools in each region are listed in alphabetical order by name, and not ranked.

In its website profile on Fisher, The Princeton Review describes the College as offering a “welcome family environment” with a “strong sense of community.” The publication praised Fisher for its ability to provide students with an “individualized education” and a host of opportunities to network and engage in experiential learning experiences.

“Fisher is proud to be included in The Princeton Review’s best colleges in the Northeast list,” said Dr. Gerard J. Rooney, president of the College. “The feature draws from a survey of our undergraduates, which sought their views on academics and faculty-student interactions; sports and clubs; school traditions; residence halls and dining; and more. These insights provide invaluable guidance for college-bound students searching for their best fit schools, and we are grateful to our students who took the time to share their unique perspectives on their Fisher experience.”
