SEARCY — Harding University is one of the best colleges in the Southeast, according to the nationally recognized education services company The Princeton Review. Harding is one of 140 institutions the organization recommends in its "Best in the Southeast" section of its website feature "2016 Best Colleges: Region by Region" that was posted Aug. 5 on PrincetonReview.com.
The Princeton Review editors made their selections based on data the company collected from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region as well as its staff visits to schools over the years and the perspectives of college counselors and advisers whose opinions the company solicits.
"We chose Harding University and the other outstanding institutions on this list primarily for their excellent academics," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Senior VP-Publisher. "We also gave careful consideration to what students enrolled at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences on our student survey for this project. We designed our 80-question survey to include questions that prospective applicants might ask on a campus visit."
The 140 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.
