      Michigan Tech listed as one of the nation's best colleges

      Michigan Tech was named one of the best Midwestern colleges in the country by the 2014 edition of Princeton Review's 378 Best Colleges.

      The Princeton Review does not rank schools, but rather lists schools for quality. The results come from student surveys as well as school visits from National College Counsel Advisory board members. The data touches on subjects like quality of life and extracurricular activities.

      Michigan Tech president Glenn Mroz says the honorable markings are due to outstanding faculty as well as hard-working students.

      "When you get that combination of people who are really dedicated to learning and discovering new knowledge, maybe start a business, that sort of thing, it makes for a really exciting place, and I think that's what shows up in the rankings," said Mroz.

      Mroz added that the school is happy to receive the praise from a quality and thorough source.
