The Princeton Review again is endorsing Kalamazoo College as one of the nation’s best institutions for degree-seeking undergraduates. The education-services company highlights K in its annual college guide, The Best 386 Colleges, for the third consecutive year.
The schools aren’t individually ranked in the edition released today, but the honor places K in about the top 13 percent of the nation’s 3,000 four-year colleges. The Princeton Review chooses colleges for the book, one of its most popular publications, based on data it annually collects from administrators about their institutions’ academic offerings, and its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.
“We salute Kalamazoo College for its outstanding academics and we are truly pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their personal ‘best-fit’ college,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of The Best 386 Colleges.
The Princeton Review student survey features questions about professors, administrators, school services, campus culture and other facets of campus life. The K students the Princeton Review interviewed said the K-Plan allows students to develop strong personal relationships with their peers and professors on a campus run by and for the students. Plus, the open curriculum means students have more time to explore exactly what they want to learn.
In extra-curriculars, students say they can find their niche quickly in the small-school environment, allowing most to engaged in work they care about.
