Lewis University is one of the Best Colleges in the Midwest, according to the Princeton Review, a nationally known education services company. Lewis is one of 153 institutions the Princeton Review recommends in its “Best in the Midwest” section of its website feature, “2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region.”
“We are pleased to recommend Lewis University to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose Lewis as a Regional Best College mainly for its excellent academic programs. From several hundred schools in the region, we winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from schools, our visits to school over the years and the opinions of our staff and the recommendations of college counselors and advisors. We also took into account student opinions about their experiences at Lewis,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher of the Princeton Review.
“This designation again signifies Lewis University’s dedication to student success, whether it is achieving 100 percent passage rate on nursing certification exams or getting accepted into graduate school. These honors recognize our commitment to continuous improvement as evidenced in our latest notice of reaccreditation with the Higher Learning Commission,” commented Dr. Stephany Schlachter, provost.
The colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Midwest" list are located in 12 states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Collectively, the colleges named "Regional Best(s)" constitute about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
The Princeton Review also rated colleges based on their academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, campus safety, quality of life, and green initiatives. More information on Lewis University’s ratings can be obtained at www.princetonreview.com.
