Princeton Reviews names UNCW one of the best colleges in the southeast

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – UNC Wilmington did it again!  For the seventh year in a row, the university has earned recognition as one of the best colleges in the southeast by the Princeton Review.

"We're pleased to recommend UNCW to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree," said Robert Franek, president of publishing for the Princeton Review.

Only about 25 percent of the nation's four-year colleges are included on the "region's best" lists.  They were chosen based on institutional data, campus visits, college counselor and advisor recommendations and other information.

"It is most gratifying to know that praise from our own students contributed to our place on the Princeton Review's list," said Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo.  "UNCW is proud to be recognized among such a prestigious group of universities. This review indicates that UNCW is meeting its number one goal – to provide our students with the most powerful learning experience possible, even in these tough economic times."

The Princeton Review helps students reach their higher education goals through college and graduate school test preparation and tutoring.  The company also provides students and their parents resources to research, apply to, prepare for and learn how to pay for higher education.
