Birmingham-Southern recognized by Princeton Review as one of nation's best colleges
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features BSC in the 2013 edition of its college guide "The Best 377 Colleges," released online Monday, Aug. 20.
Only about 15 percent of the country's 2,500 four-year colleges and three colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in the annual guide. The book does not rank the colleges from 1 to 377 in any category but does include rating scores in eight categories, including academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, and commitment to the environment.
Birmingham-Southern is praised for its academic reputation, small classes, interaction with faculty, and beautiful campus and called “an institution that cares for its students and provides them with a high-quality education and opportunities to succeed.”
“We commend Birmingham-Southern College for its outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our selection of schools,” said the guide’s author, Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior VP/publisher.
Birmingham-Southern also is profiled on The Princeton Review website.
