Centenary named one of nation's top institutions by Princeton Review
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company is featuring Centenary in the new 2015 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 379 Colleges.
"We are proud to be recognized in this way," said Centenary Associate Dean of the College, Dr. Edward Ragan. "As we develop leaders for a changing world, we are thrilled to be recognized among so many other fine institutions. This is a testament to Centenary's continuing commitment to excellence."
Only about 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges and only four colleges outside the U.S. are profiled in the book, which includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories.
"Centenary College of Louisiana offers outstanding academics, which is the chief reason we selected it for the book," said Rob Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP / Publisher and author of The Best 379 Colleges.
The report stated that Centenary students named their professors' "close attention" as the key to their success and satisfaction at Centenary. One student anonymously wrote, "the professors are the best part of Centenary." The Princeton Review also praised Centenary for its small class sizes and personalized learning experience.
Centenary was also recently named in Forbes' "America's Top Colleges" ranking.
The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its student resources. This year's listing is the 23rd edition of The Princeton Review's annual Best Colleges book.
