The Princeton Review recognized Georgia College on the “Best Colleges: Region by Region” list for the seventh consecutive year.

Georgia College joined the elite group classified as the “Best in the Southeast.”

“This ranking shows not only the high caliber education we offer at Georgia College, but also the dedication of our faculty members and the quality of our students,” said Georgia College President Dr. Steve Dorman. “As Georgia’s designated liberal arts university, we are committed to providing a well-rounded and distinguished education for our students, and this continued designation on The Princeton Review list shows proof of that.”

The 138 colleges included as the "Best in the Southeast" are located in 12 states: Alabama; Arkansas; Florida; Georgia; Kentucky; Louisiana; Mississippi; North Carolina; South Carolina; Tennessee; Virginia; and West Virginia.

The Princeton Review recognized 644 colleges from all four regions of the country for "Best Colleges: Region by Region."

That list includes a wide variety of institutions from large to small, public to private, men's and women's, historically black, science and technology–focused institutions and nontraditional colleges.

Each college and university passed reviews for academic excellence based on data collected in surveys and the opinions of The Princeton Review’s staff and advisors.

The education service company also independently surveyed students attending the schools.

The Princeton Review was founded in 1981 and is headquartered in Framingham, Mass. The company is considered a leader in helping students achieve their education and career goals through its test preparation services, tutoring and admissions resources, online courses and more than 150 print and digital books published by Random House, Inc.
