The Princeton Review Ranks Morehouse One of the Southeast’s Best Colleges in 2011


By ADD SEYMOUR JR.

(Aug. 2, 2010) – Morehouse College has been recognized by The Princeton Review in its survey of the best colleges in the Southeast in 2011.

Colleges and universities were recognized from four regions across the country: the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest and West. Morehouse was one of 133 chosen in the Southeast.

“Our regional best colleges constitute only 25 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges – a select group indeed,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher.

The survey is based on six categories where schools are rated 60-99: academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, quality of life and green initiatives.

“We’re pleased to recommend Morehouse College to users of our site
[PrincetonReview.com] as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree,” he said. “We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs…We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences at them in our 80-question student survey for this project.”

Also included are Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, Agnes Scott College, Emory University and Georgia Tech.
