LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Princeton Review has named Bellarmine University one of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education. The education services company features Bellarmine in the new 2010 edition of its guidebook, "The Best 371 Colleges," which goes on sale tomorrow.
The book includes profiles for only about 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges, as well as two Canadian colleges. The Princeton Review chooses schools based on institutional data, feedback from students and input from Princeton Review staff members who visit campuses across the country every year. Students praised Bellarmine for a "well-rounded education" that is "demanding in academic excellence" and for its "tight-knit community." They also noted that the student body tends to be "open-minded and personable" and that it's easy to "find a place to fit in."
The Princeton Review is known for its tutoring and classroom test preparation courses, books, and college and graduate school admission services. Its corporate headquarters is in Framingham, Mass., and editorial offices are in New York. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically, or from one to 371 in any category. For FAQs about the book, the survey and the criteria for selection, go to:
