“We’re pleased to recommend UM-Flint to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs,” says Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP / Publisher. “From several hundred schools in each region, we winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from the schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors whose recommendations we invite.”

“Our selection again by the The Princeton Review as a ‘Best in the Midwest’ university shows a continuing commitment by our dedicated faculty to providing our students with a quality education,” said Chancellor Ruth J. Person.

UM-Flint students reported their campus experiences in an 80-question survey for The Princeton Review. Only schools that permit an independent survey of their students are eligible to be considered for their regional ‘best’ lists.

The 153 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its ‘Best in the Midwest’ list are located in twelve Midwest states.
