Hendrix Included in Princeton Review’s Best Colleges Guide

CONWAY, Ark. (August 6, 2013) – Hendrix is once again among the top colleges profiled in The Princeton Review’s The Best 378 Colleges.

Only 15 percent of America's 2,500 four-year colleges are profiled in the latest edition of the guide, published this week, and the primary selection criterion is based on the outstanding academics of each school.  

“Our inclusion in The Best 378 Colleges is affirmation of Hendrix's distinctive academic program and student experience as demonstrated through its approach to engaged learning in a strong liberal arts and sciences curriculum,” said Executive Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and Vice President for Enrollment Karen R. Foust. “Hendrix is grateful for the recognition and for the faculty and staff who dedicate their energy and care in providing an outstanding educational experience for our students."

Last month, Hendrix was selected for inclusion in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014 based on academic ratings, price category, and quality of student life on campus.

For the fifth consecutive year, Hendrix was named one of the country’s “Up and Coming” liberal arts colleges by U.S. News and World Report.
