UNT ranked among ‘Best in the West’
The Princeton Review named the University of North Texas as one of 124 institutions in the 2014 Best Colleges for the “Best in the West” category.
The Princeton Review, a nationally known education services company, compiles lists by region, rather than ranking the schools on each list. The schools are rated in six categories: academics, admissions, selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, quality of life and how “green” the campus is. The top schools are named to the list.
This is the sixth consecutive year UNT has been recognized by the Princeton Review.
