UNO Again Listed Among Princeton Review’s Best Midwestern Colleges
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) has again been selected for inclusion in The Princeton Review's new college guide, The Best Midwestern Colleges, which was released this week. Based on statistical information and surveys of college students and recent college graduates, the guide showcases top schools in 12 Princeton Review states – Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. UNO was included in the guide for the first time last year.
UNO's Princeton Review entry noted that the university is "in ascension," according to the entry on academics on the princetonreview.com Web site. Students provided the comment material.
Also on the "Academics" page, another UNO student comment read "substantial efforts have been made and will continue to be made to make UNO a bigger and better university to attend in the coming years."
Princeton Review's guides highlighted 644 colleges and universities across the nation; 163 in the Midwest. Five other institutions in Nebraska -- Creighton University, Doane College, Hastings College, Nebraska Wesleyan University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln – received a listing.
The Princeton Review launched its regional college guides several years ago in response to a growing trend for students to attend colleges and universities within two- to five-hour drives of their homes. The regional guides focus on the Midwest, Northeast, Southeast and West.
Information in the guides includes data on admissions, financial aid, student body demographics and academics. The regional guides, like the national one from The Princeton Review, also present an inclusive cross-section of academically outstanding colleges.
The Princeton Review is a New York City-based company known for its test prep courses, education services and books. It is not affiliated with Princeton University or Educational Testing Service. Princeton Review books are published by Random House.
