Princeton Review Names UW-Eau Claire
As a Best Midwestern College for 2007

RELEASED: Sept. 11, 2006

Best Colleges logoEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has been named by The Princeton Review as a 2007 Best Midwestern College and one of America's Best Value Colleges.

UW-Eau Claire is one of 163 schools to receive the "Best Midwestern College" designation and is included on a list of 150 Best Value Colleges.

Kristina Anderson, executive director of enrollment services at UW-Eau Claire, said UW-Eau Claire continues to be a first-choice campus for talented students.

"The faculty and staff work hard to nurture our students, and in an era of rising tuition across the country, UW-Eau Claire continues to be an excellent education value. Being recognized for that excellence by the Princeton Review is certainly an honor.

This year student opinion data from a total of 656 schools is featured on the "Best Colleges: Region by Region" section of PrincetonReview.com. This feature focuses on the best colleges in four regions and is aimed at raising awareness of excellent but lesser known colleges for students looking to study within a specific geographic area.

Each college chosen had to meet two criteria: First, they had to meet the Princeton Review's standards for academic excellence within their region, and second, they had to participate in a student survey.

To come up with the 150 Best Value Colleges, The Princeton Review reviewed financial statistics from hundreds of schools and surveyed thousands of students. According to the Web site, each school on the list offers an excellent academic experience, but students and their families won't have to mortgage their future to pay for it.
