For the fourth consecutive year, Morningside College has been designated a “Best Midwestern College” by The Princeton Review. The designation reflects the opinions of students surveyed by The Princeton Review.
“At Morningside College, we are intentional about providing a student-centered, residential college experience,” said President John Reynders. “The faculty and staff are focused on our mission of cultivating successful, responsible citizens who understand the need for ethical leadership and have a passion for life-long learning. It’s a testament to their efforts that each year we continue to earn designations as a ‘best’ college.”
Morningside was one of the “Best 361 Colleges” nationally and one of the 163 Midwestern schools that received the “Best in the Midwest” designation from The Princeton Review. Only 16 private and public schools in Iowa received this distinction.
Earlier this month, Morningside announced that it was listed as a “Best” college in U.S.News & World Report’s 2007 college rankings, a designation the institution has earned three years in a row. Morningside ranked in the top 50 as no. 42 among the Midwest’s “Best Comprehensive Colleges-Bachelor’s."
The Princeton Review’s Midwestern region includes 12 states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
The Princeton Review rankings are based upon anonymous student opinion surveys that the company conducts during campus visits or electronically via its Web site. The survey includes 80 questions on quality of life, academics, and financial aid.
