Princeton Review Names Lee University One Of Best In Southeast

Thursday, August 22, 2019

Lee University is one of the 142 best colleges in the Southeast, according to The Princeton Review, a leading tutoring, test prep, and college admission services company.  

In its recent website article, “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region,” The Princeton Review recommends a total of 656 colleges throughout five regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. Of these 656 schools, which constitute just 22 percent of the nation's four-year colleges, 142 made the “Best in the Southeast” list.

“We chose Lee University and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief. “The Princeton Review considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits. We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences.”

The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Colleges are rated in scores from 60 to 99 in categories such as academics, professors, financial aid, fire safety, and quality of life.

“It’s gratifying to be recognized again this year by Princeton Review,” said Lee President Paul Conn, “because we know their standards are high.  That ranking is another outside affirmation that we are serving our students well.”

The Princeton Review helps millions of college and graduate school-bound students achieve their education and career goals through online and in person courses delivered by a network of over 4,000 teachers and tutors, online resources, and through more than 150 print and digital books published by Penguin Random House. Its Tutor.com brand is the largest online tutoring service in the United States, comprising thousands of tutors who have delivered more than 15 million one-to-one tutoring sessions.
