Ohio University is one of the best colleges in the Midwest according to education services company The Princeton Review.
"We're pleased to recommend Ohio University as one of the best schools to earn an undergraduate degree. We chose it and the other terrific institutions we named as 'regional best' colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president of publishing. Ohio University is one of 152 "Best in the Midwest" institutions on the "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region" rankings on princetonreview.com.
Ohio University's Kent J. Smith, Jr., Ph.D., vice president for student affairs, said the ranking reflects OHIO's vision to provide the best student-centered learning experience in America.
"We are pleased to be recognized for our outstanding academics as judged by educational professionals," Smith said. "It is our goal, every day, to provide OHIO students with the highest quality academic experience coupled with meaningful out-of-class opportunities and professional support services to help them grow and develop into the people who will become tomorrow's leaders.
"Ohio University students are among the best in the country. I am amazed every day at the caliber of students involved in our 350-plus student organizations or in meaningful research and internships in addition to their studies. We have more than 185,000 alumni who hold leadership positions in all walks of life, thanks, in part, to their Ohio University education."
