Princeton Review lists Southern Wesleyan University among Best Southeastern Colleges

September 16, 2008

COLUMBIA, SC – September 16, 2008 – The Princeton Review has named Southern Wesleyan University as a Best Southeastern College in the 2009 edition of its annual college guide “The Best 368 Colleges.”

Southern Wesleyan University is one of 139 colleges Princeton Review selected as an outstanding institution in the Southeast.

“In our opinion, each school in this book is first-rate academically,” said Robert Franek, the author of The Princeton Review.  “But their campus cultures and offerings differ greatly. Instead of ranking schools academically, 1 to 368, we tally ranking lists in 62 categories based on what students at the schools (their customers) report to us about them.  We believe college applicants need to know far more about schools than an academic ranking to identify which colleges may be best for them. It’s all about the fit.”

Prospective students from across the nation use The Princeton Review to prepare for the SAT and to learn more about colleges and universities. Southern Wesleyan University has received the Best in the Southeast ranking for the fifth consecutive year in a row.

Southern Wesleyan University prepares students for leadership and graduate study in such fields as religion, education, music, business, medicine, law and a variety of civic and social service professions. Southern Wesleyan offers 35 major areas of study for undergraduates and graduate degrees in the areas of business, education and ministry. The university’s main campus is in Central and there are regional learning centers across the state, in locations such as Greenville, Columbia, Charleston and North Augusta.
