HU named to Princeton Review’s ‘Best’ list

For the 11th year in a row, The Princeton Review has named Huntington University one of the best colleges in the Midwest. The nationally-known education services company recommends the school as one of 158 institutions in 12 Midwestern states on its “Best in the Midwest” list for 2018.

For the “2018 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” The Princeton Review saluted 658 colleges in five zones—Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International—that were considered academically outstanding and well worth consideration in a college search. 

“Huntington University continues to receive external recognition for the outstanding work done by faculty, staff, students and graduates. We are honored to celebrate our legacy of Christ, scholarship and service,” stated Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, President of Huntington University.

The Princeton Review editors narrowed their choices based on institutional data the company collected directly from several hundred colleges in each region, staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions college counselors and advisors whose recommendations the company invites.

For their listing, The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of their science lab facilities — and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Student comments in the profile on Huntington University indicate that “Jesus Christ is the center of every aspect of the University, from the classroom to everyday life.” One student stated that the “truly caring professors are personable, and [students have] a great experience in the classroom and outside it with them.”

The 158 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its “Best in the Midwest” 2018 list are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
