BC Featured in Princeton Review College Guide

Berea College has been named as one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review's "Best 361 Colleges".

The New York-based educational service company features Berea as on of the best 361 colleges in the 2006 edition of the annual "Best Colleges" guide. Only 15% of four-year colleges in America and two Canadian colleges are included in the book. It has two-page profiles on the schools and student survey-based ranking lists of top 20 colleges in the book in various categories. The college profiles in "The Best 361 Colleges" also include candid comments from affiliates surveyed at the schools. Among the comments about Berea College in regards to the academic life include: "Berea College students, faculty, and staff are committed to using their knowledge to leave the world a little better than they found it through learning, labor and service."

The ranking lists in "The Best 361 Colleges" are based on The Princeton Review's survey of 110,000 students attending the colleges in the book. Students rated their schools on several topics and reported on their campus experiences. Ranking list categories range from best professors, administration and campus food to lists based on student body political leanings, interests in sports and other aspects of campus life. Berea College appears within the top twenty on the following ranking lists: “Students Happy with Financial Aid"; “Got Milk?”; “Scotch and Soda, Hold the Scotch”; and “Stone Cold Sober”.

"The Best 361 Colleges" is the 14th edition of The Princeton Review's annual "Best Colleges" guide. It is one of over 200 Princeton Review books published by Random House. The Princeton Review also posts the book's ranking lists on its website linked below.
