Best Value in Colleges

Parents and students seeking a college that’s outstanding academically and exceptional at meeting students’ financial-aid needs might want to peruse “The Princeton Review’s 100 Best Value Colleges for 2011.”

The list, which features 50 public and 50 private colleges, ranks the top 10 schools in each group and identifies the remaining 40 schools in each group alphabetically.

The University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Va., tops the list of Best Value Public Colleges, and Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pa., ranks as the Best Value Private College.

Other public colleges ranked in the top 10 include, in order of ranking: New College of Florida in Sarasota, Fla.; University of Florida in Gainesville, Fla.; State University of New York at Binghamton in Binghamton, N.Y.; University of Georgia in Athens, Ga.; University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich.; College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va.; University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C.; North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C.; and City University of New York – Hunter College in New York.

Other private colleges ranked in the top 10 include, in order of ranking: Duke University in Durham, N.C.; Princeton University in Princeton, N.J.; California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif.; Harvard College in Cambridge, Mass.; Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn.; Williams College in Williamstown, Mass.; Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.; Wesleyan College in Macon, Ga.; and Yale University in New Haven, Conn.

The Princeton Review, one of America’s best known education services companies, teamed with USA TODAY to present the list, which can be viewed in its entirety at the Princeton Review site here and at the USA TODAY site here.

The two Web sites also include information about the colleges. At the USA TODAY site, visitors can click on an interactive map and can access a database with facts and statistics about each school, including cost of attendance, financial aid and enrollment. The USA TODAY site also features a report explaining why each school was named to the list.

The Princeton Review chose the schools in the list based on criteria covering academics, cost of attendance, and financial aid. The company examined more than 30 factors, using data from its surveys of administrators and students at 650 colleges with strong academic programs. Most of the data analyzed came from surveys conducted from the fall of 2009 through the fall of 2010. All cost and financial-aid data came from surveys conducted during the fall of 2010.
