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 Institute in the 2021 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 386 Colleges (Penguin Random House, August 18, 2020, $24.99).
Only about 14% of America’s 2,800 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 Institute 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 386 Colleges.
In the profile on Webb Institute, The Princeton Review praises the school for its “intense curriculum, but the academics tie in well with the winter work terms” and quotes from Webb students the company surveyed for the book. Among their comments: “Work terms give each student a feel for industry sectors and allow them to make improved career decisions when selecting a first job,” “You cannot beat the alumni network here,” which readily helps students find jobs, lodging, and anything else they need.
The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book from 1 to 386. 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.” The rankings in this edition are based on the company’s surveys of 143,000 students at the 386 schools in the book.
Webb Institute is on the following ranking lists in “The Best 386 Colleges”:
