Alma Receives ‘Best in the Midwest’ Designation
A national education services company has designated Alma College as one of the best colleges and universities in the Midwest.
The Princeton Review selected Alma College as one of 158 institutions it recommends as “Best in the Midwest” for 2010.
In its Website profile of Alma College, the Princeton Review quotes students who describe Alma as a place with “strong academic offerings,” numerous “out-of-class experiences,” and “one-on-one access to professors that is amazing.”
The Princeton Review divided the country into four regions and identified 640 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 the schools’ academics, administration, campus life and student body.
The 12-state Midwest region comprises Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
“We are always delighted when independent organizations like the Princeton Review recognize the quality of Alma’s academic programs and the commitment our faculty and staff have to personal attention, active learning, service and leadership,” says Mike Silverthorn, director of marketing and public relations. “This is a wonderful stamp of approval for the Alma Experience.”
The Princeton Review is known for its tutoring and classroom test-preparation courses, books and education services. It is not affiliated with Princeton University.
