SUBJECT: C of O Named to Princeton Review’s Best 377 Colleges and #2 on the Got Milk? and Don’t Inhale Lists
The Princeton Review just released its guidebook of The Best 377 Colleges, available in bookstores and online. College of the Ozarks was included among Princeton Review’s best. The private, Christian work college also made a few other noteworthy lists included in the guidebook designed to help prospective college students find a quality college that best fits them.
The Princeton Review surveyed 122,000 students from the 377 institutions included in the book to rate their schools on dozens of topics and campus experiences. Sixty-two noteworthy lists in categories ranging from town relations to campus culture are included in the guidebook.
A few noteworthy lists that College of the Ozarks made are:
Scotch and Soda, Hold the Scotch--#2
Future Rotarians and Daughters of the American Revolution--#2
Town-Gown Relations Are Great--#6
Most Religious Students--#7
Most Conservative Students--#6
“This isn’t the first time that College of the Ozarks has been named to the popular Got Milk list,” said Elizabeth Hughes, public relations director. “We are honored to be included in such a select group and recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation by The Princeton Review.”
According to the Princeton Review profile of College of the Ozarks (pg. 184, Best 377), which intertwines direct quotes from students surveyed from the college with its own observations, ”’Partying is almost nonexistent, but students don’t seem to mind.’ They’re happy ‘creating lasting friendships while getting not only knowledge in the classroom setting but also working skills for future jobs.’”
The profile also says that “Students describe the academic experience at this tuition-free, Christian college as ‘very challenging and very rewarding.’”
