OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY NAMED ONE OF REGION'S TOP COLLEGES BY PRINCETON REVIEW

For the third consecutive year, Old Dominion University has been named one of "The Best Southeastern Colleges" by The Princeton Review in its annual guide.

The ranking, which was based on student surveys, constitutes a portion of the publisher's best regional guidebooks that feature profiles of more than 600 schools. The Southeastern section showcases the top schools in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee.

Institutions featured in the annual review met criteria for academic excellence in their regions and students were interviewed anonymously, either through the Princeton Review Web site or a paper survey. The survey asked students questions about their school's academics, campus life and student body.

Old Dominion also ranked in the third tier of U.S. News and World Report's top national universities section of the recently released America's Best Colleges 2008. Other Virginia schools in the third tier include George Mason and Virginia Commonwealth universities.
