Lake Erie College named to Princeton Review’s “Best in the Midwest” List
Lake Erie 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 the school as one of 159 institutions it recommends in its "Best in the Midwest" section on its website feature 2009 Best Colleges: Region by Region.
The 159 colleges The Princeton Review chose for this year’s "Best in the Midwest" designations are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The Princeton Review also designated 212 colleges in the Northeast, 120 in the West and 139 in the Southeast as best in their locales on the company’s 2009 Best Colleges: Region by Region section on its site. The 630 colleges named "regional best(s)" represent only about 25% (one out of four) of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
"We commend all of the schools we name this year as our 'regional best' colleges primarily for their excellent academic programs,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's vice president of publishing.
“We selected these institutions based on institutional data we collected from several hundred schools in each region, our visits to schools over the years and the opinions of independent and high school-based college advisors whose recommendations we invite,” he added.
The Princeton Review also takes into account what each school’s customers – their students – report about their campus experiences at their schools on The Review’s 80-question student survey.
