Princeton Review Names UW-Eau Claire
as a Best Midwestern College for 2009

RELEASED: Aug. 8, 2008

The Princeton Review Best Midwestern College logoEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has been named as a 2009 Best Midwestern College by The Princeton Review, a New York City-based education services company.

UW-Eau Claire is one of 158 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 630 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. The 630 "regional bests" represent only about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.

Colleges chosen had to meet The Princeton Review's standards for academic excellence within their region and allow their students to participate in an anonymous survey. Students' comments are posted in "Students Say" sections throughout each college's profile in the "Best Colleges: Region by Region" Web site.
