Rhodes Featured in the Princeton Review Book, "The Best 373 Colleges" - 2011 Edition
Publication Date: 8/4/2010
Rhodes is one of the country′s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the college in the new 2011 edition of its annual college guide, "The Best 373 Colleges" (Random House / Princeton Review, August 3, 2010, $22.99). The Rhodes campus was also rated one of the 20 most beautiful in the country.
Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review′s flagship college guide. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review′s surveys of students attending the colleges.
Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review′s Senior VP / Publishing and author of "The Best 373 Colleges," "We commend Rhodes for its outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our selection of schools for the book. Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools, and the opinions of our staff and our 28-member National College Counselor Advisory Board. We also work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character."
In its profile on Rhodes The Princeton Review quotes extensively from students the company surveyed for the book. Among their comments about their campus experiences there: “Professors don′t just care about passing the tests, they want students to be able to take what they have learned and apply it to real life,” and, “Rhodes is filled with the types of students that are any high school counselor’s dream.”
