July 28 - Once again, Hastings College is named a Best in the Midwest by The Princeton Review
Hastings College has been named a “Best in the Midwest” college by The Princeton Review and is profiled in the website feature “2010 Best Colleges: Region by Region.” The Princeton Review has ranked Hastings College among the best Midwestern colleges every year since the publication’s founding in 2004.
The Hastings College profile includes statistics and information on enrollment and student body, admissions, financial aid, academic majors, student-to-faculty ratio and campus life and facilities, as well as student responses to the survey questions.
Hastings College students were asked to rate their overall happiness with the campus, relationships with fellow students and the community and the quality of professors, learning environment and campus resources.
The following excerpts are from what students had to say about Hastings College, listed on The Princeton Review’s website:
• “Hastings College offers a thorough slate of liberal arts requirements ensuring that all students are exposed to the most comprehensive program for personal and professional development available in the United States.”
• "My academic experience has opened all sorts of doors for me both professionally and personally. This would not have been possible without the availability and, more importantly, mentorship of my professors or administrators.”
• “People at Hastings College take a genuine interest in the development of each student. Professors make themselves readily available 24 hours day.”
• “Most students are very involved in the campus community, and the college provides many different groups to join.”
The Princeton Review, headquartered in New York City, offers a website, publications, and other services to help students learn about colleges and universities.
