Shorter College named a "Best in the Southeast” college by The Princeton Review
August 5 - Shorter College has been named a "Best in the Southeast” college by The Princeton Review for the fifth consecutive year.
The Princeton Review ’s rankings are based on the results of data received from administrators at colleges and universities across the nation, as well as on answers provided to an 80-question survey given to students at those schools. Shorter is one of 141 schools in the southeast that holds this title.
The distinction comes on the heels of many accomplishments that Shorter has already achieved this past year. Its athletics program received national attention as Head Football Coach Phil Jones was honored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes with its Grant Teaff Coach of the Year Award, and just this summer, the college added online courses to help make a Shorter College education even more accessible.
Shorter’s new Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is set to launch in the fall of 2010; already, Shorter maintains a strong program in the sciences, with more than an 80 percent acceptance rate into medical or veterinary school. Shorter students continue to be involved in study-abroad programs, mission work and Christian ministries.
Reflecting what Shorter has become through the extraordinary growth and progress recently, the college will transition to university status on June 1, 2010.
Founded in 1873, Shorter College is a Christian college committed to excellence in education. Since 2003, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Shorter among the South’s best baccalaureate colleges. The college offers bachelor’s degrees in 48 major areas, master’s level and undergraduate degree programs for working adults, online courses, and a vibrant intercollegiate athletic program.
