UWG Named as a Best Southeastern College
The Princeton Review has recognized the University of West Georgia as a Best Southeastern College for the year 2009. The recognition marks the sixth consecutive year that UWG has been awarded the prestigious listing.
The Princeton Review named the University of West Georgia as a “Best Southeastern College” based on student surveys that praised the campus community, academic classes, their professors and the vibrant student life. It is the sixth year in the row that UWG has received the distinction.
The regional rankings, which covers four regions and lists 639 schools in the nation as being the best, is determined by student opinion and surveys.
UWG President Beheruz N. Sethna said the 375-acre campus at West Georgia is a great environment for learning.
“I am delighted that UWG has been recognized as a Best Southeastern College by the Princeton Review for the sixth consecutive year,” said Sethna. “This vote of confidence reflects the high esteem in which we are held in the region. Our thanks to the students and the Princeton Review for this honor.”
The lists, school profiles and the student comments provide an uncensored view of life on campus and give valuable information to students searching for the right college in a region suitable for them. Students are able to fill out the survey online at any time.
The Richards College of Business and UWG have been recognized in two other rankings: the RCOB was ranked sixth nationally as one of the greatest opportunities for minority students, and UWG has been listed as one of America’s Best Value Colleges in 2007 and 2008.
