Drink Breathe Learn: Indiana at the Top

by | Mar 11, 2015
A variety of publications and reviews have come out recently that all put Indiana in top spots for a variety of honors that reflect the diversity of the state, from its beer-brewing prowess to its postsecondary institutions.

First off, the Three Floyds Brewing Company of Munster, Indiana earned the honor of fourth-best brewery in the world according to the popular consumer review websiteRateBeer.com. The ranking is out of over 19,000 breweries worldwide. Three Floyds Brewing has consistently earned top spots for its beers for years, having taken the top prize in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Secondly, an article from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management byKeith Baugues demonstrated that Indiana places 9th out of all 50 states for air quality. This in spite of the fact that Indiana is one of the top manufacturing states in the county (the state produced $232,142 million in goods in 2011 alone).

“Some people mistakenly believe that Indiana has poor air quality,” writes Baugues. “The truth is that Indiana attained the national standards for all six criteria air pollutants in 2009, and our air quality is continuing to improve.” The report considers the top emissions produced by manufacturing, which Baugues argues shows that even while Indiana manufacturers produce a lot of goods, they manage to do it “very efficiently, with relatively little air pollution.” According to the analysis, Indiana’s highest rating was for SO2, attributed to the reliance on coal fired electrical generation. But since the last report (they are only released every three years) some of these plants have either been closed, converted to natural gas or seen investments of air scrubbers that have kept Indiana in compliance and ahead of ever-more environmentally aware allowable levels set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Thirdly, the Princeton Review published a ranking of the top 200 colleges and universities in the country that were worth the money, considering over 40 factors such as cost, academics, alumni salaries and job satisfaction. The report, titled “Colleges That Pay You Back,” included six Indiana educational institutions including:

  • DePauw University
  • Indiana University
  • Purdue University
  • Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • University of Notre Dame
  • Wabash College              

The company created their list by using a propriety return-on-investment rating applied to data collected from 2013 and 2014.

“We strongly recommend these schools,” said Robert Franek, speaking broadly of all the institutions that made the cut into the top. “They deliver outstanding academics while working to be affordable to students with need—offering generous financial aid or charging a relatively low cost of attendance. Or both. Plus, their students graduate with great career prospects.”

“We strongly recommend these schools,” said Robert Franek, speaking broadly of all the institutions that made the cut into the top. “They deliver outstanding academics while working to be affordable to students with need—offering generous financial aid or charging a relatively low cost of attendance. Or both. Plus, their students graduate with great career prospects.”

Drink Breathe Learn: Indiana at the Top

by | Mar 11, 2015
A variety of publications and reviews have come out recently that all put Indiana in top spots for a variety of honors that reflect the diversity of the state, from its beer-brewing prowess to its postsecondary institutions.

First off, the Three Floyds Brewing Company of Munster, Indiana earned the honor of fourth-best brewery in the world according to the popular consumer review websiteRateBeer.com. The ranking is out of over 19,000 breweries worldwide. Three Floyds Brewing has consistently earned top spots for its beers for years, having taken the top prize in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Secondly, an article from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management byKeith Baugues demonstrated that Indiana places 9th out of all 50 states for air quality. This in spite of the fact that Indiana is one of the top manufacturing states in the county (the state produced $232,142 million in goods in 2011 alone).

“Some people mistakenly believe that Indiana has poor air quality,” writes Baugues. “The truth is that Indiana attained the national standards for all six criteria air pollutants in 2009, and our air quality is continuing to improve.” The report considers the top emissions produced by manufacturing, which Baugues argues shows that even while Indiana manufacturers produce a lot of goods, they manage to do it “very efficiently, with relatively little air pollution.” According to the analysis, Indiana’s highest rating was for SO2, attributed to the reliance on coal fired electrical generation. But since the last report (they are only released every three years) some of these plants have either been closed, converted to natural gas or seen investments of air scrubbers that have kept Indiana in compliance and ahead of ever-more environmentally aware allowable levels set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Thirdly, the Princeton Review published a ranking of the top 200 colleges and universities in the country that were worth the money, considering over 40 factors such as cost, academics, alumni salaries and job satisfaction. The report, titled “Colleges That Pay You Back,” included six Indiana educational institutions including:

  • DePauw University
  • Indiana University
  • Purdue University
  • Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • University of Notre Dame
  • Wabash College
