Princeton Review names Lyon to list of ‘Best Southeastern Colleges’

BATESVILLE, Ark. — For the eighth year in a row, The Princeton Review has named Lyon College a "Best Southeastern College," based on results from its "2012 Best Colleges" survey.

Lyon College is one of 134 schools receiving the Best in the Southeast designation, and one of only four Arkansas institutions on the list compiled by the education services company headquartered in Massachusetts.

“We're pleased to recommend Lyon College 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 and publisher. “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 eachregion, 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 at them on our 80-question student survey for this project. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional 'best' lists.”  

The 134 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Southeast" designations are located in twelve states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana,Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.  The Princeton Review also designated 220 colleges in the Northeast, 153 in the Midwest, and 121 in the West as best in their locales on the company’s "2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists. Collectively, the 629 colleges named "regional best(s)" constitute about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
