Augustana Designated as a Best College in the Midwest

SIOUX FALLS – According to The Princeton Review, Augustana is one of the best colleges in the Midwest.

The education services company selected Augustana as one of 158 institutions it profiles in its “Best in the Midwest” section of its Web site feature, 2010 Best Colleges: Region by Region.

The 158 colleges The Princeton Review chose for this year’s “Best in the Midwest” designations are located in 12 states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The Princeton Review also designated colleges in the Northeast, West, and Southeast as best in their locales.

“We chose Augustana and the other terrific schools we recommend as our ‘regional best’ colleges primarily for their excellent academic programs,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s vice president for publishing. “We choose the schools based on institutional data we collect from several hundred schools in each region, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of independent and high school-based college advisors whose recommendations we invite.”

Also taken into account are reports from students reporting about their campus experiences.
