UJ named to Best in the Midwest list
"We chose University of Jamestown and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their excellent academics," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review editor. The Princeton Review editors made their selections based on data the company collected from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, as well as its staff visits to schools over the years and the perspectives of college counselors and advisors whose opinions the company solicits.
"We also gave careful consideration to what students enrolled at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences on our student survey for this project," Franek said. "We designed our 80-question survey to include questions that prospective applicants might ask on a campus visit. Only schools that permit us independently to survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional 'best' lists, and only schools at which we see a strong level of satisfaction among their enrolled students make it to our final slate of regional 'best' college selections."
“We are pleased to once again be recognized by Princeton Review as one of the best universities in the Midwest,” said UJ President, Dr. Polly Peterson. “University of Jamestown has a strong reputation for providing a quality education through a blending of the liberal arts with professional programs in an environment that promotes student engagement and an encounter with Christian tradition. It is an honor to be recognized nationally for the work that we do.”
The 159 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Midwest" 2019 list are located in 12 states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The Princeton Review also designated 225 colleges in the Northeast, 129 in the West, 143 in the Southeast and four abroad as best in their locales on the company’s "2019 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists.
