For yet another year, The Princeton Review named Corban University as one of the “Best in the West” colleges in its 2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region online feature.
Corban was selected from among hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the United States’ western region encompassing Montana to the north and Texas to the southwest. Of these, 120 were chosen by The Princeton Review for this recognition.
Corban earned consistently high marks in academics, admissions, financial aid, safety and more. Additionally, random students were asked to answer questions about the accessibility of professors, campus food and quality of life.
"We're pleased to recommend Corban University to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president for publishing. “We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs. From several hundred schools in each region, we winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from the schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors whose recommendations we invite.
“We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences on our 80-question student survey,” he added. “Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our ‘regional best' lists."
This recognition also shows that students continue to support the core values that Corban University holds dear.
“It adds credibility to our mission and academic standing and encourages prospective students to consider us in that light,” said Steve Hunt, Corban’s vice president for marketing. “Even though an institution’s mission may vary from school to school, they often interview students to determine if they’ve achieved their academic goals at Corban and what their overall experience has been.”
