Princeton Review Praises College Professors’ Attention to Students

Albertson College of Idaho is making a move toward the top with the release of two college guidebooks, the 2007 U.S. News and World Report rankings, and the Princeton Review Rankings. The Caldwell college was named among the top 200 liberal arts colleges in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, while the Princeton Review touted CofI as 20th in the nation for More Things to Do On Campus. 'In this year’s rankings, the college showed significant improvement in the quality of the freshman class,' Albertson College President Bob Hoover said. 'The data continue to confirm that the college recruits the most competitive academic class among all of Idaho's colleges and that the number of classes with fewer than twenty students is many times less than the large Idaho universities.' The Princeton Review rankings are based upon a survey of current students. The book praises the personal attention provided at Albertson College of Idaho. 'Students overwhelmingly praise the school’s small size and the individual attention they receive. In all areas, 'The professors are absolutely amazing. They genuinely care about your progress and are willing to go out of their way to assist you in any way possible,' reads the review. More…

First Year Students Welcomed to Campus with Convocation

The briskness of fall is in the air and students are beginning to return to the Albertson College of Idaho campus. The class of 2010 will officially be welcomed with the traditional convocation ceremony this coming weekend. The ceremony will be held at a new time this year, on Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m., rather than on Monday morning. The move was made to allow more parents to attend the event. 'This is an important ceremony for the first year students,' Bob Hoover said. 'Convocation is their first taste of the history and traditions of Albertson College of Idaho.' On Monday morning, the first year students, accompanied by students, staff, and faculty, will head to McCall for orientation before classes begin on September 7.
