The University of Jamestown is one of the 159 best colleges in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists the University of Jamestown in the Best in the Midwest section of its "2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region" website feature that posted on Aug. 6.

"We chose University of Jamestown and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief. He said 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 advisers 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 said.

“We are pleased to once again be recognized by the Princeton Review as a Best Regional college in the Midwest," said Dr. Polly Peterson, UJ president. "Our university has a strong reputation for providing a quality education by blending the liberal arts with professional preparation in an environment that promotes student engagement and a commitment to the Christian faith. It is an honor to be recognized nationally for the work that we do.”

Greg Ulland, vice president of enrollment management, said UJ appreciated having its efforts to provide quality and relevant programs recognized.
