Thomas Aquinas College received high rankings from the Princeton Review for the school’s quality of life, financial aid and academics. The liberal arts college received a score of 95 percent for academics, 97 percent for quality of life, and a 99 percent for financial aid.
“Thomas Aquinas College’s outstanding academics are the chief reason we chose it for this book, and we strongly recommend it to applicants,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president. “We base our choices primarily on data we obtain in our annual surveys of administrators at these schools and at hundreds of other colleges.”
Brian Kelly, the college’s dean, said he was “delighted” that Thomas Aquinas is again featured in the Princeton Review. “Our goal has always been to provide the best education at the most affordable price,” Kelly said. “The Princeton Review profile offers some strong evidence that we are succeeding.”
The report is published in the 2016 edition of the annual guide, “The Best 380 Colleges,” where about 15 percent of the 25,000 U.S. four-year colleges are profiled. The book went on sale earlier this week.
