August 5, 2014

The Princeton Review has named Stephens College one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education.

The college is featured in “The Best 379 Colleges,” which was released on Aug. 5. Stephens is ranked No. 12 for its theatre program.

About 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges are featured in the annual college guide. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus lists of top 20 colleges in various categories.

The Princeton Review bases selections on data, campus visits and feedback, including student surveys.

According to the company, Stephens students enjoy an “amazing family atmosphere” at the college. They also say “Stephens empowers women to take on leadership roles in the workplace and the world.”

Faculty are well qualified in their fields, students say, and “they love teaching here and are excited to work with students.”

One student wrote, “We all have a plan for what we want to do in life, and we know that we will achieve it by being here.”

The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its test-prep courses, tutoring, books, and other student resources.
