Menlo College Named "A Best In The West" College By The Princeton Review for Fourth Straight Year
Original post made by Darcy Blake, Atherton: West Atherton, on Aug 21, 2012
In the profile for Menlo College on its site, The Princeton Review describes the college as "Â… small, but that size is part of what is helping forge its reputation as a great business school that focuses a lot on individual attention. In its efforts to 'better tomorrow's business people,' this Silicon Valley school focuses on many fields of business inside and outside of the classroom." Those interested in Menlo will find a school that "provides a top-notch education and unmatched college experience through their dedication to student needs." Students praise the professors at Menlo for being "approachable and more than willing to help you outside of class time," teachers who are "able to give individual attention to students and do so with pleasure."
Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP / Publisher, "We recommend Menlo College to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose it as a 'regional best' college mainly for its excellent academic programs. We winnowed our list based on institutional data we collected directly from schools, our visits to schools over the years, and the opinions of our staff, plus college counselors and advisors. We also take into account what students reported to us about their campus experiences on our 80-question student survey. Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional 'best' lists."
"We are thrilled that Menlo College earned this distinction from The Princeton Review once again, said President James J. Kelly. "Ambitious business students wanting an exceptional academic experience complemented by outstanding athletics and student life activities will find our college an excellent fit."
