Princeton Review Names UW-Eau Claire
as a Best Midwestern College for 2008

RELEASED: Aug. 23, 2007

Princeton Review logoEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has been named by The Princeton Review as a 2008 Best Midwestern College.

UW-Eau Claire is one of 161 schools in a 12-state region to receive the "Best Midwestern College" designation.

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.

"Our student-centered approach has made UW-Eau Claire an excellent institution for eager, engaged students," Anderson said. "From study abroad, to faculty-student collaborative research, students have the ability to nurture their talents in meaningful ways. Being recognized for that excellence by The Princeton Review is certainly an honor."

This year student opinion data from a total of 654 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.

In April, The Princeton Review also named UW-Eau Claire one of the nation's best-value undergraduate institutions. The university is featured in The Princeton Review's 2008 edition of America's Best Value Colleges, a guide that profiles 165 colleges chosen for their excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and/or relatively low costs of attendance.
