  •     The Princeton Review, an education services company known for its test prep programs and college and graduate school guides, named the University of Minnesota Crookston as one of 159 colleges in their "Best in the Midwest” for 2015. This recognition marks the eighth consecutive year the campus has been included as a Best in the Midwest. Results are posted in the website feature, "2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region" at princetonreview.com/best-regional-colleges.aspx.
    Selection process   
        The Princeton Review editors narrowed their choices based on institutional data the Company collected directly from several hundred colleges in each region, staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions college counselors and advisors whose recommendations the Company invites.   
        For this project, The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues -- from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of their science lab facilities -- and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life.    
        The Princeton Review also rates the schools on its "2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region" list in six categories. The rating scores (on a scale of 60 to 99) appear on the school profiles, and are tallied from institutional data the Company obtained from the colleges in 2013-14 and/or its student survey data.
