Six North Texas universities have been named to the Best in the West list by The Princeton Review.

The University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Christian University, Southern Methodist University, the University of Dallas and the University of North Texas all made the list in 2011.

Robert Franek, publisher and senior vice president at The Princeton Review, said this year's "Best in the West" colleges were selected among hundreds of others mainly for their excellent academic programs.

Franek said other criteria used in the selection of the schools were: institutional data collected directly from the schools, yearly visits to the campuses, recommendations from college counselors and advisors, the opinions of the Review staff, as well as students' assessment of their campus experiences, collected through an 80-question student survey.

The Princeton Review is a New York City-based, national education services company.

The Princeton Review named 121 institutions to its "Best in the West" section on its website feature, "2012 Best Colleges: Region by Region." The list can be accessed on the website with a free registration.
