UJ Named to “Best in the Midwest”

University of Jamestown is one of the best colleges in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. The education services company lists UJ in the Best in the Midwest section of its “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region”.

“We chose University of Jamestown and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief. He noted that the company 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,” Franek added.

UJ President, Dr. Polly Peterson said, “We are pleased to once again be recognized by the Princeton Review as a Best Regional college in the Midwest. Our university has a strong reputation for providing a quality education by blending the liberal arts with professional preparation in an environment that promotes student engagement and a commitment to the Christian faith. It is an honor to be recognized nationally for the work that we do.”

“We appreciate that our efforts to offer students quality and relevant programs have been recognized,” commented Greg Ulland, Vice President of Enrollment Management. “University of Jamestown’s Journey to Success approach to education ensures students that they are prepared to enter the workforce and become leaders in their communities upon graduation.”
