UWF selected as a Best Southeastern College by the Princeton Review

The University of West Florida was named a Best Southeastern College by The Princeton Review for the 11th consecutive year, based on results from the company’s 2014 Best Colleges survey.

UWF was one of 138 institutions receiving the Best in Southeast designation. The company designated 643 colleges total across the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and Western regions.

The Princeton Review surveys students at selected institutions on several factors, ranging from the accessibility of professors, to the number of hours they spend studying outside of the classroom, to the quality of the food on campus. Comments from the surveyed students are included in the school profiles on The Princeton Review website.

The 643 colleges included in the “2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region” list constitute 25 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges. They are not ranked hierarchically or in various categories by the Princeton Review.

The Princeton Review is known for its test prep courses, education services and books. It has conducted the Best Colleges survey since 1992, when the company first published its annual guide. It is the only one that offers college rankings based on student ratings of the schools.
