Longwood University is again one of the best colleges in the Southeast, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company recently selected Longwood one of 138 institutions in its "Best in the Southeast" section of its 2014 Best Colleges: Region by Region survey.

"We’re pleased to recommend these colleges to users of our site as the best schools to earn their undergrad degrees," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president and publisher. "We chose these as our ‘regional best’ colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs."

In this annual project, The Princeton Review asks students attending the schools to rate their own schools on several issues—from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food—and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students and their campus life. Longwood was included in this list last year as well.

In addition to 138 schools in the Southeast region, which encompasses 12 states, "regional best" distinction also was awarded to 226 colleges in the Northeast, 124 in the West and 155 in the Midwest. Collectively, these 643 colleges constitute about 25 percent of the nation’s 2,500 four-year colleges.

In February, Longwood was one of 75 public institutions to be featured in The Princeton Review’s book, Best Value Colleges: 2013 Edition. This list may be viewed at http://www.princetonreview.com/best-value-colleges.aspx.
