Princeton Review says UNT among best in the West

From a UNT News Service press release

Students on campus

UNT was named one of the best universities in the West, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company selected UNT as one of 123 institutions it recommends in its web site feature, 2010 Best Colleges: Region by Region.

"We chose the University of North Texas and the other terrific schools we recommend as our regional best colleges primarily for their excellent academic programs," says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's vice president of publishing. "We choose the schools based on institutional data we collect from several hundred schools in each region, our visits to schools over the years and the opinions of independent and high school-based advisors. We also take into account what each school's customers their students report to us in our student survey."

The Princeton Review survey for the project asks students to rate their own schools on several issues from the accessibility of professors to the quality of the campus food and answer questions about themselves, fellow students and campus life. Comments from surveyed students are included on the web site.
