Shepherdstown, WV--Shepherd University has been named one of the best colleges and universities in the southeast according to the Princeton Review's website. The New York City-based education services company selected Shepherd as one of 136 institutions it recommends in its "Best in the Southeast" section on its website feature 2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region.

"I am always pleased to see Shepherd recognized by outside organizations," said Kimberly Scranage, vice president for enrollment management. "From community service to critical learning skills to the liberal arts, Shepherd continues to be recognized nationally as outstanding in many diverse ways, including small classes, innovations in teaching, personal interactions with faculty, opportunities for faculty-supervised research, and a supportive atmosphere."

The 136 colleges the Princeton Review chose for its Best in the Southeast designation are located in 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The Princeton Review also designates colleges in the Northeast, West, and Midwest as best in their locales. A total of 623 colleges nationwide were named regional bests representing about 25 percent of the nation's four-year colleges.

The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in its 2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region Web site. The Princeton Review survey asks students to rate their own schools on several issues, from accessibility of their professors to the quality of the campus food, and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life.
