Brescia University Named “A Best in the Southeast” College

Brescia Ranks A Best College in SoutheastFor the seventh year, Brescia University was named as one of the best colleges and universities in the Southeast according to The Princeton Review. The New York City-based education services company selected the school as one of 135 institutions it recommends in its “Best in the Southeast” section on its website feature 2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region, which was released to the public on Monday, August 1.

The Princeton Review selects colleges and universities based on institutional data, visits to the campuses, opinions of high school college advisors, and information received from an 80-question survey given to current Brescia students.

The United States has 2,500 four-year colleges. Only 629 of them were named “regional best(s).”

“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,” says Robert Ranek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP/Publisher.
