Mercer University was recently ranked No. 8 in The Princeton Review’s 2013 The Best 377 Colleges guidebook for participation in intramural sports.
The Review does not rank the 377 schools overall individually, however the schools are ranked in various categories that are decided upon based on student surveys. Mercer placed in the category titled, “Everyone Play Intramural Sports” in addition to being recognized for the University’s academics and esteemed faculty and staff.
Mercer has been among many schools highlighted in The Princeton Review for nine consecutive years.
About 15 percent of four-year colleges in America and two Canadian colleges were chosen for this year’s edition of the book.
“We commend Mercer for its outstanding academics, which is the primary criteria for our choice of schools for the book,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s vice president of publishing and author of the book.
Mercer was featured in a two-page profile that included quotes from Mercer students who were surveyed for The Review. Students expressed that “the number of opportunities available to enhance the student’s academic experience is excellent” and “Mercer is a place that respects its students and knows the enormous potential its students have.”
“Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools and the opinion of our staff and our 28-member National College Counselor Advisory Board,” said Franek. “We also work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity and character.”
Mercer’s involvement in intramurals landed the University ranked as No. 8 but the academics of Mercer and ideal college experience contributed to Mercer’s coverage in the book.
