Rose-Hulman earns high marks from national organization

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology once again receives high marks in “The Best 388 Colleges” book produced by The Princeton Review.

Not only has it been recognized as a “Best Value College”, it has also been ranked in the top ten in several categories.

This year, Rose-Hulman placed in the top 20 and earned accolades in the following categories:

Rankings are based on student surveys. Princeton Review editor Rob Franek says, “Our selection of colleges in this book is based on our opinion of their academic offerings. We recommend each as an outstanding academic choice for an applicant. Our ranking lists, however, are not based on our college reviews. They are entirely based on what school students have told us about their experiences.

Rose-Hulman President Rob Coons says the ranking shows the impact of Rose-Hulman’s investment in campus programs and facilities.

“I’m really happy with Rose-Hulman’s position and think it’s a real tribute to our faculty and staff, and the quality of our facilities. We are particularly encouraged to see The Princeton Review give us our highest ranking in the areas of Science Facilities, Career Services, Student Support and Counseling Services, and Residence Life,” Coons said. “The opening of the new university building last year has greatly improved our chemistry and biochemistry laboratories, bringing them up to par with the high quality facilities of our other university departments. Meanwhile, enhancements to our career services, counseling and residence life areas continue to support our institutional goal of providing student-centered undergraduate education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. .
