Princeton Review awards UNCW 'Best in the Southeast,' 'Best Value'

WILMINGTON -- For the fourth consecutive year, the University of North Carolina Wilmington received the 2008 "Best in the Southeast" and "Best Value" designation by The Princeton Review. UNC Wilmington is among the 146 colleges named a Best Southeastern College for 2008, which the publication describes as "some of the colleges and universities that we feel stand out in the region." In addition, UNCW is listed as one of the colleges designated as one of the best overall bargains -- based on cost and financial aid -- among the most academically outstanding colleges throughout the entire United States. Colleges were selected based upon student responses to a survey about their respective school's academics, administration, campus life, student body and themselves. The Princeton Review is a New York City-based company known for its test prep courses, education services and books. It has conducted the survey since 1992, when it first published its annual "Best Colleges," the only guide offering college rankings based on student ratings of their schools and reports of their experiences with them. Ranking lists of top 20 colleges in more than 50 categories are in the new 2008 edition of The Princeton Review book Best 366 Colleges and can be viewed at
