ARLINGTON - The Princeton Review has chosen The University of Texas at Arlington as one of 121 schools featured in the “Best of the West” section of its “2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region.”

The Princeton Review’s college ratings are based on academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid and quality of life factors. The service also surveys students online or by mail.

The Best Regional Colleges section of The Princeton Review’s website features 629 colleges divided into four geographic areas. The chosen schools represent just 25 percent of the four-year colleges in the U.S. The site says the schools “stand out as academically excellent institutions of higher learning.”

Princeton Review lists biology, business administration and nursing as some of the most popular majors at UT Arlington. The site features a “Students Say” section that lauds the University’s diversity and says, “it would be hard not to find some group you would fit into.”

More than 16 percent of UT Arlington’s nearly 34,000 students are Hispanic. About 14 percent are African-American. The University has repeatedly been listed as one of the nation’s best colleges for diversity by U.S. News & World Report.
