The Princeton Review has once again recognized Oglethorpe University as one of the Best Colleges in the Southeast.
The well-known education services company included Oglethorpe in its 2022 Best Colleges Region by Region–recommended schools that are “academically outstanding and well worth consideration” in a college search. Only 143 colleges in 12 Southeastern states and 655 overall made the select group of colleges. Princeton Review’s Best Colleges constitutes just 24% of the nation’s 2,700 four-year colleges.
“We chose Oglethorpe University and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics,” said Robert Franek, editor-in-chief at The Princeton Review.
The company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.
“We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences,” Franek added.
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Survey topics include overall campus quality of life and safety, as well as quality of teaching and professor accessibility.
The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its tutoring, test-prep, books, and other student resources.
