Webb Institute is one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles and recommends Webb in the 2020 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 385 Colleges (Penguin Random House, August 6, 2019, $24.99).
Only about 13% of America’s 3,000 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review’s most popular publications. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project.
“We salute Webb for its outstanding academics and we are truly pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their personal ‘best-fit’ college,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief and lead author of The Best 385 Colleges.
In the profile on Webb, The Princeton Review praises the school for its admissions committee that “is dedicated to finding students who will excel in the school’s rigorous program” and quotes from Webb students the company surveyed for the book. One student commented that winter work term “gives each student a feel for industry sectors and allow them to make improved career decisions when selecting a first job.” Another student speaks about the family atmosphere at Webb, saying students “become best friends very quickly, giving everyone great support systems both academically and socially.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book from 1 to 385. Instead, it reports 62 ranking lists of top 20 schools in the book in various categories important to prospective applicants and their parents. Categories of ranking lists range from “Best Career Services” and “Great Financial Aid” to “Professors Get High Marks” and “Best Campus Food.” The rankings in this edition are based on the company’s surveys of 140,000 students at the 385 schools in the book.
Webb is on the following ranking lists in “The Best 385 Colleges”:
#5 Most Accessible Professors
#9 Students Study the Most
