Kentucky Wesleyan College is one of the best colleges in the Southeast according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review. It is one of 133 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in the "Best in the Southeast" section of its website feature, "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region," that posted August 2, 2010 on www.princetonreview.com.
Dr. Cheryl D. King, president of KWC, said of the designation, “Kentucky Wesleyan College is once again honored by the Princeton Review distinction. Our consistent inclusion over a number of years reflects our strong commitment to academic excellence as we prepare students to serve and succeed throughout the world.”
Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP/Publishing, "We're pleased to recommend Kentucky Wesleyan College to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as 'regional best' colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs."
"From several hundred schools in each region, we winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from the schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors whose recommendations we invite. We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for this project. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional 'best' lists."
The 133 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Southeast" designations are located in twelve states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The Princeton Review also designated 218 colleges in the Northeast, 152 in the Midwest and 120 in the West as best in their locales on the company’s "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists. Collectively, the 623 colleges named "regional best(s)" constitute about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
The Princeton Review, headquartered in Framingham, MA, with editorial offices in New York City and test preparation locations across the country and abroad, is not affiliated with Princeton University and it is not a magazine.
