Hastings College named a Best in the Midwest by The Princeton Review
Hastings College is named “A Best in the Midwest” college by The Princeton Review on its website feature: “2011 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. Colleges chosen by The Princeton Review represent the top 25 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.
The Princeton Review’s online profile of Hastings College includes college statistics and information on enrollment and student body, admissions, financial aid, academic majors, student-to-faculty ratio, campus life, facilities and more.
From several hundred schools in each region, The Princeton Review narrowed their list based on institutional data collected directly from the schools, repeated visits to the schools, and the opinions of The Princeton Review staff with those of independent college counselors and advisors. Students’ observations and opinions about the college are also taken in account.
Hastings College students were asked to rate their overall happiness with the campus, relationships with fellow students and the community, and the quality of the professors, learning environment and campus resources.
The following excerpts are what students told The Princeton Review about Hastings College:
“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.”
