Princeton Review includes UNT in The Best Western Colleges

Tuesday, September 2, 2003

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The Princeton Review included the University of North Texas in its first edition of The Best Western Colleges, a regional based guidebook for prospective college students. The book, which is part of a five-book series, features 121 colleges and universities from 15 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.Because students are increasingly attending universities near their homes, Princeton Review created the guidebooks to group universities by regions, thus the profiles of selected universities present statistical analysis and student opinion-based narrative, but do not include ranking lists.The regional guides present a cross-section of academically outstanding colleges, according to the Princeton Review, because the 604 colleges in the five guides are only 17 percent of the nation's 3,500 colleges.The University of North Texas, with more than 30,000 students, is the leading university of the Dallas-Ft. Worth region and the state's fourth largest. Listed as a doctoral/research university-extensive, UNT is ranked in the top 4 percent of U.S. colleges and universities by the Carnegie Foundation. UNT has many nationally ranked programs among its 98 bachelor's, 125 master's and 47 doctoral degree programs.
