Madison, Wis. (August 19, 2019) – Edgewood College is one of the 159 best colleges in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists the College in the Best in the Midwest section of its “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region” website.
“We chose Edgewood College and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics,” Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief, said. He noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.
“We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences,” Franek added.
The website feature salutes a total of 656 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends over five regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. The colleges that made the “Best in the Midwest” list are located in twelve Midwestern states. Collectively, the 656 constitute about 22% of the nation’s 3,000 four-year colleges.
