ROCK HILL, S.C. - The Princeton Review again has ranked Winthrop as one of the best colleges in the Southeast according to its surveys on the university’s academic excellence and student feedback regarding their college experiences.

The university is one of 133 institutions the Princeton Review recommends in its website feature, "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region," that posted this week on PrincetonReview.com.

In the profile, the Princeton Review describes Winthrop as “a public university, which is reflected in its diverse student body, but it has a private university feel in terms of the small size of classes, the caliber of the faculty, and the beauty of the campus.”

Winthrop President Anthony DiGiorgio said that a unique aspect of Winthrop’s role as one of the region’s leading public universities is its legislative mandate to be a “first-class institution of higher education” offering an educational experience “as the progress of the times may require.”

“Consistent with our presence in one of the Carolinas’ fastest-growing and most progressive metropolitan regions, Winthrop fulfills this mandate by linking our values and traditions to the ever-evolving demands of modern times,” he said.

The 133 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Southeast" designations are located in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.  The Princeton Review also designated 218 colleges in the Northeast, 152 in the Midwest, and 120 in the West as best in their locales on the company’s "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists.  Collectively, the 623 colleges named regional bests constitute about 25 percent a of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
