Princeton Review’s 2017 issue of The Best 381 Colleges includes Marietta College among the best Midwestern colleges. The new listings were released earlier this week.

The nationally known education services company recommends Marietta as one of 156 institutions in 12 states it named to its “Best in the Midwest” list for 2017. A total of 649 colleges and universities nationwide are ranked among the “regional bests.”

The 156 colleges The Princeton Review chose for its “Best in the Midwest” 2017 list are located in these 12 states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of their science lab facilities — and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life.

Princeton Review, not affiliated with Princeton University, has published its Best Colleges guide annually since 1992.
