DeLand, FL – Stetson University made it onto the Princeton Review’s list of the nation’s best 381 colleges. It also made it onto the list for the best southeastern universities and green colleges.

The list is one of The Princeton Review’s mot popular guides, and only around 15% of the country’s 2,500 four-year colleges made it into the book. A new list is released every year based on input from over 143,000 students.

“Stetson’s outstanding academics are the chief reason we chose it for this book and we strongly recommend it to applicants,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s senior vice president-publisher and author of The Best 381 Colleges. “We make our selections primarily based on data we collect through our annual surveys of administrators at several hundred four-year colleges…and an unparalleled amount of feedback we get from our surveys of students attending these schools.”

In their comments on Stetson, students noted the University’s small class size (13:1 on average), personalized attention, accessible and supportive faculty, modern facilities, diverse student population, and the school’s global focus.

“Stetson provides a personalized learning experience to each student, based on top quality faculty and focused on learning outcomes,” said Stetson University President Wendy B. Libby, Ph.D. “Stetson has made great strides over the past few years in attracting more excellent students who are a great fit for the institution. Then we fulfill our mission by doing a wonderful job in supporting those worthy students in their quest for higher education.”
