Georgia College recognized among “Best in the Southeast”
Georgia College has been named a “Best in the Southeast” for the sixth consecutive year by The Princeton Review in its annual survey of regional universities and colleges.
The university joins an elite group on the 2013 list, which includes approximately 25 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.
“This ranking supports the type of educational experience we provide our students as Georgia’s public liberal arts university,” said Dr. Paul Jones, Georgia College interim president. “Offering excellent academic programs in an environment where students feel welcomed and inspired is a major goal of our university.”
Georgia College is one of 136 “regional best” colleges The Princeton Review featured on its website list of Southeastern schools, part of this year’s “2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region.”
A total of 663 schools from the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and West earned the designation.
The profile of Georgia College on The Princeton Review’s website includes 15 campus images, background information about the institution and ways to connect to the university through social media.
The Princeton Review selected schools from the four regions primarily for their excellent academic programs. However, the review considered what students of each school reported from a student survey about their campus experiences.
The college ratings also included academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, quality of life and The Green Rating — a measure of a school’s performance as an environmentally aware and responsible institution.
