MSOE is among Best in the Midwest

August 31st, 2016

Aug. 31, 2016 — Milwaukee School of Engineering is one of the best colleges and universities in the Midwest according to The Princeton Review. Only 156 institutions were named to the “Best in the Midwest” list on The Princeton Review’s website feature, “2017 Best Colleges: Region by Region.” MSOE has been included on this list every year since 2003.

“We base our ranking lists entirely on what the colleges’ customers, their enrolled students, report to us on our surveys. As such, they provide unique insights into the campus cultures, aid offerings, services, and student body communities at these schools. In the end, it’s all about the fit,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP-Publisher. “Each year, we salute schools in four regions of the country—Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and West that we consider academically outstanding and well worth consideration in your college search.”

The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to quality of their science lab facilities — and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life.  Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review site.
