Cornell College named best college by The Princeton Review
For the 14th consecutive year, Cornell College has been named one of the country’s top colleges in The Princeton Review’s college guide, “The Best 384 Colleges.”
The 2019 edition, featuring Cornell College, was released Aug. 7, 2018. Cornell was also included on the regional lists as one of the Best Midwestern colleges.
One of The Princeton Review’s most popular guides, “The Best 384 Colleges” rankings are based on surveys of 138,000 students at 384 top colleges that include a wide representation by region, size, selectivity, and character. The Princeton Review survey asked students from across the country to rate their schools on dozens of topics and report their experiences.
According to an excerpt from the book under the “students say” section: “The personal attention you can receive from any given professor, if you seek them out, is especially rewarding,” says a student. All in all, students love the block structure and the sense of community it creates, as “no matter what it is you may want to do, you can find someone to do it with you.” One student claims he “cannot imagine learning any other way.”
Published annually since 1992, the book has detailed profiles of the colleges. The Princeton Review is a tutoring, test prep, and college admission services company.
