Princeton Review Names FSC Among Best in the Nation
LAKELAND, Fla. (July 28, 2009) — Florida Southern College is among the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2010 edition of its popular guidebook, The Best 371 Colleges (Random House / Princeton Review, $22.99), which published today.
The book, which includes detailed profiles of the colleges, names Florida Southern as one of the "Best in the Southeast." The Florida Southern entry includes students' praise for the friendly college community, beautiful campus, and small classes (the student-faculty ratio is 12:1). "Most of the professors are deeply committed to the students and will go to great lengths to help," one student says.
Only about 15% of Americas 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review's flagship annual college guide. The Princeton Review's ranking of The Best 371 Colleges is based entirely on its survey of 122,000 students (about 325 per campus, on average) who attend the colleges in the book.
