Montana Tech Recognized by the Princeton Review



Montana Tech has been recognized in The Princeton Review’s annual college guide, “The Best 373 Colleges" and online in its website feature, “2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region.”


The Princeton Review named Montana Tech as one of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education. The Princeton Review, an education services company, featured Tech in their 2011 college guidebook, "The Best 373 Colleges." This is the Princeton Review’s 19th edition of the book.

Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges and two Canadian colleges are profiled in the book, which is The Princeton Review's flagship college guide. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores for all schools in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review's surveys of students attending the colleges.

Montana Tech was also named one of the best colleges in the West according to the Princeton Review. Tech is one of 120 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its "Best in the West" section of its website feature, "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region," recently posted on The 120 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the West" list are located in fifteen states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. The University of Montana was also listed in the Princeton Review’s publication.

For this project, The Princeton Review asked students attending the schools to rate (in their opinion) their 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. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in its "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region" list hierarchically or by region.

“These recognitions are truly an honor for Montana Tech because they are derived from data gathered from our students,” said Mike Johnson, Vice Chancellor of Development and Student Services and President of the Montana Tech Foundation. “This is the 11th consecutive year we have received this distinction and it demonstrates the commitment to excellence at our institution. Our faculty and staff are among the finest in the nation, and The Princeton Review agrees.”
