NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Middle Tennessee State University was named among the best colleges in the United States for the first time ever.
The Princeton Review's "Best 385 Colleges" list included the local university.
The honor is given to about 13 percent of four-year schools across the nation.
“We are pleased that The Princeton Review recognizes the great quality and value of our academic programs and the wonderful quality of life and facilities found on our campus,” said MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee in a press release.
According to school officials, MTSU has been included in the review’s list of top schools in the Southeast in past years. The university remains on the regional list by virtue of its inclusion on the review’s top national list.
The University of Tennessee-Knoxville was the only other public institution in the state to make the list.
