ATLANTA (Sept. 16, 2014) -- Clark Atlanta University (CAU) is one of the best schools in the Southeast, according to The Princeton Review.  The nationally known education services company recommends the school as one of 139 institutions in 12 Southeastern states it names to its "Best in the Southeast" list for 2015.  The list is part of the company's website feature, "2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region."

CAU President Carlton E. Brown said, “We are pleased again to be listed as one of the best Southeastern schools.  This recognition is coupled with another recent accolade as one of the top 20 historically black colleges and universities, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.  Despite a challenging economic climate for our students and their parents, CAU still remains a school of choice with a mission as important today as ever.”     

In its profile on CAU, The Princeton Review commends the college for its academics and majors, campus life and facilities,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president and publisher.  "We developed our "Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists to offer guidance for the growing number of students and parents now seeking colleges closer to home. We selected Clark Atlanta -- and the other terrific institutions on our 'regional best' lists -- primarily for their excellent academic offerings."

The Princeton Review editors narrowed their choices based on institutional data the company collected directly from several hundred colleges in each region, staff visits to schools over the years, and the opinions college counselors and advisors whose recommendations the company invites.  Franek added, "Our selections also take into account what students at the schools report to us about their experiences on our 80-question student survey for this project.  We ask every question that a prospective applicant might want to ask on a campus visit.  Only schools that permit us to independently survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional best lists."
