WINONA, Minn. – Winona State University is among the 153 schools named "Best in the Midwest" by The Princeton Review, a nationally known education services company. The university has received the designation for eight consecutive years.
In total 629 colleges across the Midwest, Northeast, West and Southeast were named "regional bests." According to the Princeton Review these colleges represent only about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
The Princeton Review’s annual “Best Colleges: Region by Region” rankings are based on student opinion data from the schools. Students are asked to rate their own schools on several issues—from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food—and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students and their campus life.
