MELBOURNE, FLA.—Princeton Review has named Florida Institute of Technology a “Best in the Southeast” institution in its Web site feature 2010 Best Colleges: Region by Region.
“We are pleased but not surprised to find ourselves among the ‘Best in the Southeast.’ What is especially important is that the ranking is a result of satisfaction among our students,” said Florida Tech President Anthony J. Catanese.
The Princeton Review survey for this project asks students to rate their own schools on several issues. These range from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of campus food.
Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s vice president, publishing, said, “We chose Florida Tech and the other terrific schools we recommend as our ‘regional best’ colleges primarily for their excellent academic programs.
“We choose the schools based on institutional data we collect from several hundred schools in each region, our visits to schools over the years and the opinions of independent and high school-based college advisers whose recommendations we invite. We also take into account what each school’s customers—their students—report to us about their campus experiences on our 80-question student survey.”
