Millikin University is listed as one of the Midwest’s best colleges in The Princeton Review’s 2013 college selection guide. Millikin is one of 153 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Midwest” section of its website feature, “2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” on PrincetonReview.com.
“We are pleased to recommend Millikin University to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergraduate degree,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president and publisher. “We chose it and the other institutions we name as 'regional best' colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs.”
The Princeton Review rankings are based on institutional data obtained from the colleges in 2011-2012, as well as student survey data on numerous issues, including academics, student population, and overall campus life.
Millikin President Harold G. Jeffcoat remarks, “Recognition by The Princeton Review citing Millikin as one of the best universities in the Midwest reaffirms our commitment to performance education, and acknowledges the exceptional quality of our faculty, staff and students.”
Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site. In compliment to the academic programs, Millikin “stresses the importance of students becoming involved within their campus and the community around it,” remarked one Millikin student. “From the very first semester, students are presented with opportunities to engage in service,” and departments like education and nursing encourage “learning through hands-on experience in and outside the classroom.”
The 153 colleges that The Princeton Review selected for its “Best in the Midwest” section are in 12 states. The Princeton Review also identified the best colleges in the Northeast, West, and Southeast. The “Regional Best” colleges constitute about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges and universities on its regional lists. The company is based in Framingham, Mass., and has editorial offices in New York City and test preparation centers across the country and abroad.
