Survey says, "Best."

August 1, 2011

Bradley University has been rated among the nation’s best colleges by The Princeton Review, which has featured the University in the 2012 edition of its college guide, “The Best 376 Colleges.”

Only 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and three colleges outside the U.S.A. are profiled in the guide. Detailed profiles of the colleges based on opinions from independent college counselors, students and parents, and school visits are included.

“I am very pleased that Bradley University is held in such high regard among the nation’s colleges and universities,” said Bradley President Joanne Glasser. “At Bradley academic excellence, experiential learning and leadership development provide a world-class education for our extraordinary students.”

The rankings are based on The Princeton Review's survey of 122,000 students attending the colleges included in the book. Topics range from assessments of their professors as teachers to opinions about their financial aid and campus food.

Bradley was cited for focusing on providing students with “everything they need to be successful.”  Students surveyed said, “Bradley is all about teaching the individual student” and “developing one’s intellect for what comes next.”
