St. Catherine University was named one of the best colleges in the Midwest by The Princeton Review for 2011.

The Princeton Review published "2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region" on its website Aug. 2.

The Princeton Review conducts surveys of students and asks them to rate their college 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.

Universities are rated in six categories: academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, quality of life and green.

According to The Princeton Review, students said St. Kate’s … ”truly lives up to its inspiring motto: educating women to lead and influence.”

A senior surveyed commented, “Most of my professors have been fabulous instructors: passionate, articulate, and willing to go to any length to help you achieve whatever level of competency you wish in their subject.”

St. Kate’s campus community also received high marks. “…  St. Kate’s students get the best of both worlds: a quiet campus life complimented by the cosmopolitan attractions of the Twin Cities. … People really enjoy St. Kate's because, being on campus, you have a nice sense of a small, tightly woven community but you can step off campus into a life of endless possibilities and fun.”

The 152 colleges that The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Midwest" list are located in twelve states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
