Springfield, Mo., Aug. 2, 2011—Drury University is one of the best colleges in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. It is one of 153 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Midwest” section of its website feature, “2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” that was released Monday, August 1 on PrincetonReview.com.
In the profile on Drury University on its site located at:http://www.princetonreview.com/DruryUniversity.aspx, The Princeton Review describes a robust student life, “There is always something going on at Drury that you can participate in, because ‘it seems like there’s always something going on on-campus whether it’s a sport or an art gallery opening.’”
“Earlier this year, Drury was named to the Princeton Review’s Green Guide for our sustainability efforts. Now, to be named one of the Best in the Midwest acknowledges Drury’s rigorous academic programs and robust social and extracurricular opportunities,” said Drury President Todd Parnell. “Drury is honored to be recognized, once again, by the Princeton Review as one of the Best in the Midwest.”
“We’re pleased to recommend Drury 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,” says Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president/publisher. “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.”
The 153 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its “Best in the Midwest” list are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Collectively, the 629 colleges named “regional bests” constitute about 25 percent of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges.
