Princeton Review Recognizes Belmont on ‘Best in Southeast’ List
Belmont University is one of the best colleges in the Southeast according to The Princeton Review. The well-known education services company lists Belmont among its 140 “Best in the Southeast” recommended schools in the “2016 Best Colleges: Region by Region” website feature, posted on August 3.The Princeton Review editors made their selections based on data collected from a survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, as well as staff visits and the perspectives of college counselors and advisors whose opinions the company solicits.
“We chose Belmont and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their excellent academics,” said Princeton Review’s Senior VP-Publisher Robert Franek. “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. 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 – whom we consider their customers – make it to our final slate of regional ‘best’ college selections.”
