NEW YORK -- The Princeton Review ranked the University of South Dakota as one of the best 381 colleges in the U.S. and among the best Midwestern schools in its 2017 guide that went on sale Tuesday.
The education services company known for its tutoring, test-prep programs, books, admission services and other resources for students said that only about 15 percent of the 2,500 four-year colleges in the U.S. are profiled in the book, which is one of its most popular guides.
The Princeton Review doesn’t rank the colleges in any category but instead uses surveys of 143,000 students that asked them 84 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body and themselves.
Students gave USD high marks for its honors program, caring professors, small teacher-to-student ratio, number of national scholars and wide variety of academic programs. Read the USD listing.
