Lyon College once again added to best colleges list | News
Nine and counting.
Once again, The Princeton Review has named Lyon College a “Best Southeastern College.”
The college, located in Batesville, is one of 136 receiving the designation and just one of only four in the state of Arkansas.
This is the ninth year in a row the college has been selected.
In a news release from Lyon College, The Princeton Review’s Senior Vice President and Publisher Robert Franek said:
“We're pleased to recommend Lyon College to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. 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 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 Princeton Review is known for its test prep courses, education services and books. It has conducted the “Best Colleges” survey since 1992, when it first published its annual guide.
