Alma College Receives 'Best in the Midwest' Designation
Alma College is one of the best colleges in the Midwest according to the Princeton Review, an education services company that annually rates institutions on academic rigor, admissions selectivity, quality of campus life and financial aid.
The Princeton Review selected Alma College as one of 152 institutions it recommends as “Best in the Midwest” for 2011.
In its online 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 623 colleges as academically excellent institutions of higher learning. 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 communications at Alma College. “This is an important stamp of approval for Alma College.”
The Princeton Review is known for its tutoring and classroom test-preparation courses, books and education services.
