Emory Named “Best Value College” by Princeton Review

The Princeton Review has named Emory University to its list of  “2013 Best Value Colleges.” The annual ranking identifies America’s top undergraduate schools that offer the best value based “on excellent academics, generous financial aid and cost of attendance.”

Princeton Review’s rankings of the 75 best value private schools and 75 public schools were published in USA Today on Feb. 5. Emory has been named a “Best Value” by The Princeton Review in 2012, 2011, 2009 and 2008.

Emory is consistently identified as a best value among private universities and colleges — those institutions that are both academically strong and affordable. The Princeton Review ranking comes on the heels of Emory’s ranking in October 2012 as the 15th “best value” out of 100 top private universities by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine.

Emory’s 15th place among the 100 top private universities that exemplify excellent academics while keeping costs to a minimum reflects its long-standing commitment to provide access to its baccalaureate degree programs for well-qualified students across the full range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Kiplinger’s has annually cited Emory as a “best value” since 2007.
