As Hastings College prepares to welcome students back for the 2013-14 academic year, the college has been named among the top 25 percent of colleges and universities nationally and one of the best within in a 12-state region. The Princeton Review has included Hastings College on its “2014 Best in the Midwest” for undergraduate programs.
“This honor recognizes our strong academic programs, successful recruiting efforts and the quality of student life on campus,” said Don Jackson, President of Hastings College. “From the continued accessibility of our professors to the increased weekend programming, all on campus have contributed to this achievement.”
The Princeton Review bases its rankings primarily on academic excellence, although institutional data and independent campus surveys of students regarding all aspects of their college experience also play a role.
