Morningside has been designated a "Best Midwestern College" by The Princeton Review every year since 2003.
The 153 colleges The Princeton Review chose for this year’s "Best in the Midwest" list are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The Princeton Review chooses the schools based on institutional data it collects from several hundred schools in each region, visits to the schools and the opinions of independent and high school-based college advisors. The Princeton Review also takes into account the results of an 80-question survey completed by students at each of the schools.
The Princeton Review also designated 220 colleges in the Northeast, 121 in the West, and 135 in the Southeast as best in their locales on the company’s “2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region” section on its website. The 629 colleges named "regional bests" represent only about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges.
The Princeton Review is known for its tutoring and classroom test preparation courses, books, and college and graduate school admission services. Its corporate headquarters is in Framingham, Mass., and editorial offices are in New York City. It is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
