Princeton Review Names Menlo College “Best in the West” for Third Straight Year

August 3, 2011

The Princeton Review, a nationally known education services company, has named Menlo College a 2012 “Best in the West” institution.

“Receiving this recognition for the third year in a row is a wonderful tribute to the hard work and success of our students, faculty, and staff,” said President James Kelly. ”Our fine academics, athletics, and strong community network on- and off-campus in the Silicon Valley sets us apart and we are pleased to be in this spotlight.”

This distinction, awarded to just 121 institutions of higher learning, shows the consistency with which Menlo College provides its diverse student body with personalized service, a globally focused curriculum in business and psychology, outstanding faculty, and a vibrant student life experience.

“We winnowed our list based on data we collected directly from the schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP / Publisher. “We also take into account what students at the schools reported to us about their campus experiences.”
