King College has again been selected as one of the best colleges and universities
in the Southeast by the Princeton Review, a New York City-based education services
company. It is the sixth consecutive year King has received the designation.
We're delighted to be counted among those colleges honored by the Princeton Review,
said LeAnn Hughes, vice president of marketing and development. The survey is mainly
focused on the quality of a school's academic programs, but also takes into account
student satisfaction and the opinion of independent advisers. Being included is an
accolade for our overall mission of academic excellence, as well as applause for the
individual attention we provide each student.
While King's enrollment has more than doubled in the past five years, the college
maintains a low student-faculty ratio of approximately 14-to-1.
King was one of 141 institutions recommended in the Best in the Southeast section
on the Princeton Review's Web site feature 2010 Best Colleges Region by Region. Colleges
in the section are located in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West
Virginia. Overall, 640 schools were named regional best(s) throughout the nation,
representing a selective group of only about 25% of America's 2,500 four-year colleges.
We chose King College and the other terrific schools we recommend as our 'regional
best' colleges primarily for their excellent academic programs, said Robert Franek,
Princeton Review's V.P., Publishing. We also work to have our roster of 'regional
best' colleges feature a range of institutions by size, selectivity, character and
locale. We choose the schools based on institutional data we collect from several
hundred schools in each region, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions
of independent and high school-based college advisors whose recommendations we invite.
We also take into account what each school's customers - their students - report to
us about their campus experiences at them on our 80-question student survey.
The survey for this project asked students to rate their own schools on several issues,
from the accessibility of professors to the quality of campus food, and answer questions
about themselves, fellow students, and campus life.
