UT Named One of 378 Best Colleges by the Princeton Review

Published: Aug 7, 2013
The University of Tampa has been again named by The Princeton Review as one of the nation's 378 best institutions for undergraduate education.

Only about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and only four colleges outside the U.S.A. are profiled in The Princeton Review’s book, The Best 378 Colleges.

“UT’s continued inclusion in this well-respected guide is a testament to the expertise and commitment of our faculty and staff to provide an outstanding educational experience for students,” said UT President Ronald L. Vaughn.

The colleges included are based on data The Princeton Review obtains in its annual institutional data surveys, from its 35-member National College Counselor Advisory Board, through personal visits to schools, and through the wide range of feedback gleaned from surveys of students attending these schools.

“UT offers outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for the choice of schools for the book,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president.

In its profile, students praise UT for its academics: “the academics are hands-on and actually fun;” and for its student body: “Our school is too diverse to even consider describing a typical student.” As for campus life, The Princeton Review says at UT “boredom will never be an issue.”

In a "Survey Says" sidebar in the book's profile on UT, The Princeton Review lists topics that UT students surveyed for the book were in most agreement about in their answers to survey questions. The list includes: “Students get along with local community,” and “Students are friendly.”
