Florida Institute of Technology is again one of the best colleges in the Southeast according to the nationally known education services company, The Princeton Review. Florida Tech is one of 135 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Southeast” section of its website feature, “2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” that posted this month on PrincetonReview.com.
The Princeton Review also takes into account what students at the schools reported about their campus experiences through a student survey. Only schools that permit The Princeton Review to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for the regional ‘best’ lists.
The survey asks students to rate their own schools on several issues. These range from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of campus food.
The 135 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its “Best in the Southeast” designations are located in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The Princeton Review also designated 220 colleges in the Northeast, 153 in the Midwest and 121 in the West as best in their locales on the company’s “2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region” lists. Collectively, the 629 colleges named “regional best(s)” constitute about 25 percent of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges.
The Princeton Review, headquartered in Framingham, Mass., with editorial offices in New York City and test preparation locations across the country and abroad, is not affiliated with Princeton University and is not a magazine.
