Princeton Review again ranks UNT among "Best in the West"

Monday, September 10, 2012 - 16:30

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The University of North Texas, the largest, most comprehensive university in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is one of the best colleges in the West, according to The Princeton Review, a nationally known education services company.

The Princeton Review selected UNT as one of 122 institutions in its "Best in the West" section of its website feature, 2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region.

For five consecutive years the university has been recognized by the influential Princeton Review, which is best known for providing test-prep courses, tutoring, books, and other student resources.

"UNT's goal is to provide the best undergraduate education in Texas, and the continued recognition of excellence by outside organizations such as the Princeton Review is a gratifying affirmation of our efforts," said Troy Johnson, vice provost and associate vice president for enrollment management.

"We're pleased to recommend the University of North Texas to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior VP/ publishing. "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 on our 80-question student survey for this project."

The schools are also rated in six categories--academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, quality of life, and green.

"Students say UNT offers 'the cream of the crop, dynamic, and nationally renowned programs,'" reported The Princeton Review.

The 122 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the West" list are located in 15 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
