ARLINGTON - The University of Texas at Arlington was named one of the best colleges in the West according to The Princeton Review, a nationally known educational services company.
UT Arlington is one of 120 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its "Best in the West" section of its website feature "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region" that was posted Monday, Aug. 2, on PrincetonReview.com.
The Princeton Review listed biology, general business, management and nursing as popular degrees at UT Arlington.
The 120 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the West" list are located in 15 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
Collectively, the 623 colleges named among the four regional best areas constitute about 25 percent of the nation's 2,500 four-year colleges.
For this project, The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues—from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food—and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students and their campus life.
The University of Texas at Arlington is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer.
