College Among Select Group Recognized by Education Services Company
MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Institute of Technology is again among the best schools in the Southeast United States, according to the Princeton Review’s 2015 college rankings.
The 139 colleges on the Best Regional Colleges list for the Southeast are “academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search,” according to the Framingham, Mass.-based education services company.
The schools are found in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
“Collectively, these fine schools represent an outstanding cross section of colleges,” the company reported. “Though they differ in size, campus culture and other aspects, all offer excellent undergraduate programs. Many are also great buys.”
Florida Tech was on the 2014 list last year.
To be included on the list, the colleges must pass Princeton Review’s reviews for academic excellence. Those assessments are based on administrator survey data and opinions of staff and select counselors. Participating colleges must also allow the company to independently survey students. The surveys seek responses to a variety of questions, from the accessibility of professors and depth of athletic participation to the quality of campus food.
