John Carroll University is one of the 158 best colleges in the Midwest according to the "2021 Best Colleges: Region by Region" report from The Princeton Review®, a leading tutoring, test prep, and college admission services company.
“This recognition from The Princeton Review is an acknowledgement of the time, effort, and dedication that we put into our Jesuit core curriculum and the overall student experience at John Carroll,” said Michael D. Johnson, Ph.D., president. “At John Carroll University, our faculty and staff challenge students to find opportunity in the face of challenge.”
The website features a total of 655 colleges that The Princeton Review recommends over five regions: the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West, and International. The colleges that made the "Best in the Midwest" list are located in twelve Midwestern states. The schools in each region are listed in alphabetical order by school name, and not ranked.
"We chose John Carroll and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief. He noted that the company considered data from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, information from staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of college counselors and advisors whose perspectives the company solicits.
"We also consider what students enrolled at the schools reported to us on our student survey about their campus experiences," Franek added.
The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their colleges on dozens of issues and to answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. Comments from surveyed students are quoted in the school profiles on The Princeton Review website.
Survey responses included comments like,“John Carroll promotes social justice for all and the importance of service, while giving you the tools to become a competent leader," and "(JCU) follows in the Jesuit philosophy of being men and women for others."
The 158 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Midwest" 2021 list are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The Princeton Review also designated 224 colleges in the Northeast, 127 in the West, 142 in the Southeast and 4 in the International region as “best” in their locales on the company’s "2021 Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists. Collectively, the colleges on The Princeton Review’s “regional best" lists for 2021 constitute about 23% of the nation's 2,800 four-year colleges.
