The Princeton Review has named the University of Findlay as one of the best four-year institutions in the Midwest for 2020, thereby giving the community an additional reason to celebrate the start of the school year.
The educational services company’s annual rankings are based upon student survey information and data provided by the schools. Institutions that were named are considered “academically outstanding.”
“We are pleased to be included in this esteemed ranking – a validation of the hard work and extraordinary talent of our faculty, staff, and students in pursuit of academic excellence,” said University of Findlay President Katherine Fell, Ph.D.
In its website profile on UF, The Princeton Review describes the university as a small private institution with “an impressive eighty-plus majors, including notable programs in equestrian studies and health professions.”
Students have praised UF for its friendly atmosphere, dedicated faculty, diversity, and for having “a culture all its own.”
“Everyone knows everyone and it is like a great big family on campus,” one surveyed student noted. The majority of faculty “bond with their students to really improve their experience and ability to understand the information given to them,” another commented. The University’s varietal program offerings and international student population also draw people to campus, where it’s not unusual for students “to sit in a class filled with barn kids, future physical therapists, veterinarians, and educators.”
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges in categories ranging from library services to the quality of dining offerings.
The University of Findlay was one of 159 schools named in the “Best in the Midwest” college listing. Overall, The Princeton Review recognized 656 regional colleges in five zones for its “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region” accolades. Those 656 school represent only 22 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.
