Texas Tech named 'Best in the West' by Princeton Review

From Texas Tech University:

Texas Tech University is one of the best colleges in the West according to The Princeton Review, the nationally known education services company. Texas Tech was selected as one of the 124 institutions in the website feature, "2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region."

The Princeton Review compiles its lists by asking students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food — and answer questions about themselves, fellow students and campus life.

"We are extremely proud of the quality of education and life skills we are providing our students, and it is an honor to be recognized for that," said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis. "This designation is especially meaningful because it is based on input from our current students."

The colleges The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the West" list are located in 15 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. 

The Princeton Review also designated 226 colleges in the Northeast, 155 in the Midwest, and 138 in the Southeast. Collectively, the 643 colleges named "regional best" constitute about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.

"It is an honor to be chosen as one of the Best Colleges in the West by The Princeton Review," said TTU System Chancellor Kent Hance. "Texas Tech is a top-tier university that offers its students a quality education while also providing them with the skills necessary to succeed personally and professionally. We are proud to be recognized on this list once again."

The Princeton Review is a New York-based company known for its test preparation courses, books, and college admission and other education services. It is not affiliated with Princeton University and it is not a magazine. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in its Best Colleges: Region by Region website section.

"We're pleased to recommend Texas Tech University to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degrees," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president/publishing. "We chose these as our ‘regional best' colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs."
