Princeton Review names Columbia College one of the best colleges in the Midwest
Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Columbia College has been named a 2009 Best Midwestern College by The Princeton Review, a New York City-based education services company. The college is one of only 159 schools in a 12-state region to receive the "Best Midwestern College" designation. Colleges were selected based on academic excellence and surveys of current students.

The Princeton Review calls Columbia College a "small community with great teachers and lasting friendships" and a college that is serious about "educating the whole person," where academics are bolstered by a "full college experience," and general education requirements ensure that "everyone receives a well-rounded education no matter what one's major is."
