Lawrence Technological University has earned the “Best in the Midwest” designation for the fifth year in a row from The Princeton Review, based on academic excellence and a student survey.
Lawrence Tech was among the 155 colleges in the 12-state Midwest Region and 643 colleges overall – representing 25 percent of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges – selected for the “2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region” list.
“We’re pleased to recommend these colleges to users of our site as the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose these as our ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president of The Princeton Review, a standardized test preparation and admissions consulting company. “We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us.”
According to The Princeton Review, Lawrence Tech is a university armed with a great local and a growing national reputation. In the survey, students reported the university manages to feel “like one big family.”
Undergrads value that LTU promotes both “theory and practice” and “hands-on experience.”
They describe their professors as “very knowledgeable,” “enthusiastic” and “highly motivated” educators who “bring [their] material to life” and allow students to “have fun.”
Overall, LTU undergrads see their school as “all about pushing students to learn everything they can in the classroom and be[ing] able [to use that knowledge] in the real world,” according to The Princeton Review.
