Cedarville, OhioCedarville University has recently been named for inclusion in two select college guides: the 2004-2005 edition of "Peterson`s Competitive Colleges" and the premier edition of The Princeton Review`s "The Best Midwestern Colleges: 150 Great Schools to Consider."
This is the seventh time that Cedarville has been included in "Peterson`s," a guide to the top 400 colleges and universities in the U.S. Patricia Gilson, director of education services at Peterson`s, said, "Entry into the guide has always been limited to those schools that routinely attract and admit the greatest share of the nation`s best students." She said that Cedarville`s inclusion in the guides is "based on the competitiveness of your admissions environment and the profile of the student you accept," including incoming students` GPAs, high school class rankings, and test scores. The guide will be published in December 2003.
Released just this month, "The Best Midwestern Colleges" profiles 150 top schools in the Midwest. Schools were selected for the guide based on academic excellence and student response. Each school`s profile includes candid feedback from its students on topics such as diversity, social life, academic load, professors, and more.
