Princeton Review Selects Alma as 'Best in the Midwest'
Alma College is one of the best colleges and universities in the Midwest, according to The Princeton Review.
The New York City-based education services company selected Alma
College as one of 159 institutions it recommends as “Best in the
Midwest” for 2009.
The Princeton Review divided the country into four regions and identified 630 colleges as academically excellent institutions of higher learning. Schools are rated on academic rigor, admissions selectivity, quality of campus life, and financial aid.
Ratings are calculated from student survey results and institutional data. The survey asks students 80 questions about their schools’ academics, administration, campus life, student body and themselves.
The 12-state Midwest region comprises Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
“This designation affirms the quality of Alma’s academic programs and the commitment by our faculty and staff to personal attention, active learning, service and leadership,” said Mike Silverthorn, director of marketing and public relations at Alma College.
