Brooklyn, NY — Cited for its excellent liberal arts curriculum and the high caliber of its faculty, Brooklyn College has been named one of the nation’s best-value undergraduate colleges by the Princeton Review, which ranks it among 150 institutions profiled in the 2007 edition of America’s Best Value Colleges. This is the third edition of the popular guide to affordable colleges, and the third time Brooklyn College has been ranked among the nation’s best tuition bargains.
Said one student, quoted in the book, “We have Pulitzer Prize-winners, world-famous researchers, internationally known artists and composers. They’re here on campus, sharing their knowledge with the students.”
Besides Brooklyn College’s excellent academic value, the Princeton Review also points to its “ridiculously affordable” tuition and its “wealth of merit-scholarship programs.” Other contributing factors for Brooklyn College’s best value distinction include its “very serious and admirably diverse” students and its “gorgeous campus” (ranked “Most Beautiful Campus in America” in the Princeton Review’s 2003 edition of The Best 345 Colleges).
The Princeton Review ranking is based on data from 646 colleges and from surveys of college administrators and current students. The colleges that qualified as the nation’s “best values” combined strong academics, excellent faculty, and low tuition (or no tuition-all five of the nation’s tuition-free service academies are included on the list).
In-state undergraduate students at Brooklyn College pay $4,353 for tuition and fees this school year. The cost for non-resident undergraduates is $8,993.
