Transcript UH ON TOP University is ranked as one of the best institutions in the country by the Princeton Review By Julian Jimenez UH received some well-deserved recognition as the Princeton Review ranked the University in its 2012 edition of their annual college guidebook, "The Best 376 Colleges," set for release in August 2011. The University's ranking as one of the best undergraduate institutions in the nation will mark the first time UH has ever been featured in the publication, which, according to the Princeton Review website, only includes the top eight percent of all colleges in the U.S. "Since we are striving to achieve overall excellence, this recognition by the Princeton Review is one more important indication that we're making great progress," UH President and System Chancellor Renu Khator said in a press release. "This is the first time our school has been included, so it's gratifying to know our efforts at improving student success are starting to show real results." The Princeton Review's Vice President of publishing, Robert Franek, said in a press release that the process for determining a school's inclusion onto the list is based on a large set of criteria, the results of which are based on student surveys. "First, we must have a high regard for their academic programs and other offerings," Franek said. "Second, our selections take into account institutional data we collect from the schools and the opinions of more than 122,000 students who we survey. We also greatly value the feedback we get about schools from our college-savvy staff across the country as well as from students, educators and parents who use our services and books." Franek added the company takes the rankings very seriously, and that they try to include a variety of schools in the guidebook so that the publication accurately encompasses the wide breadth and scope of educational institutions serving the country today. "It includes public and private schools, traditional and non-traditional colleges, historically black colleges and universities, and science and technology-focused institutions," Franek said. "However, each one is an outstanding institution we highly recommend to college applicants and their parents. In our opinion, these are 'the cream of the crop' institutions for undergraduates in America." To help verify the school's eligibility for ranking, Franek visited the campus in person with a team of Princeton Review executives in tow. For him and his team, the trip only solidified what many Cougars already know. "You have much to be proud of and much to brag about," Franek said. "We're delighted to share in it with you." During the trip, one of the team members, Princeton Review vice president of educational partnerships Joe Guerra, was struck by the enthusiasm and drive of the student body. "UH students are energetic. I was particularly impressed to see how much diversity the campus offers, as well as the variety of languages being spoken," Guerra said. The honor of this recognition isn't lost on UH students. Lawrence Tovar, a History junior, said that he was happy to learn that he's going to a top school. "I feel really good about it," Tovar said. "Now that we're ranked, it'll help show everyone how great it is to be a student here." [44] Inside the Pride
