The University of Tulsa is once again pleased to announce that it is featured in the Princeton Review’s flagship college guide, The Best 382 Colleges. The 2018 publication highlights the nation’s top institutions for undergraduate education based on a survey of 137,000 students who were asked to rate their schools on campus experiences and other topics.
The Princeton Review guide includes detailed college profiles with ratings for several categories including institutions with the happiest students, most accessible professors and most beautiful campus. The publication is used widely by college applicants and parents during the college decision process.
TU is regularly included in the college guide among other Princeton Review distinctions such as a top law school, leading computer gaming school and a university that “pays you back,” which is based on factors such as financial aid, career placement and graduates’ salaries.
“TU’s continued focus on student success is centered on four important pillars: acceptance, engagement, empowerment and self-discovery,” said Earl Johnson, vice president for enrollment and student services. “We are eager to share with new students what so many TU friends and alumni already know – that is our university is a supportive campus filled with caring, connected faculty and well-documented outcomes.”
The survey asks students 84 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body and themselves. The format uses a five-point scale to convert qualitative student assessments into quantitative data for school-to-school comparisons.
