Morningside College is one of the best colleges in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. The education services company selected Morningside as one of 152 institutions it recommends in the "Best in the Midwest" section of its Web site feature “2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region” at www.princetonreview.com/best-regional-colleges.aspx.
The 152 colleges The Princeton Review chose for this year’s "Best in the Midwest" list are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The Princeton Review chooses the schools based on institutional data it collects from several hundred schools in each region, visits to the schools and the opinions of independent and high school-based college advisors. The Princeton Review also takes into account the results of an 80-question survey completed by students at each of the schools.
The Princeton Review also designated 218 colleges in the Northeast, 120 in the West, and 133 in the Southeast as best in their locales on the company’s “2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region” section on its Web site. The 623 colleges named "regional bests" represent only about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges.
The Princeton Review is known for its tutoring and classroom test preparation courses, books, and college and graduate school admission services. Its corporate headquarters is in Framingham, Mass., and editorial offices are in New York City. It is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
