Baruch College has once again been praised for providing an excellent return on educational investment by The Princeton Review’s 2008 edition of America’s Best Value Colleges (Random House/Princeton Review). The guidebook’s editors praised Baruch for providing “an outstanding, professional education” at a competitive price, noting that there are approximately 250 scholarships available for students each year.
“We considered over 30 factors to identify our ‘best value’ colleges,” said Robert Franek, vice president of publishing at The Princeton Review. “They covered four areas: academics, tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants), financial aid, and student borrowing.”
Schools featured in America’s Best Value Colleges receive three-page profiles, with each profile providing information on student diversity, admissions requirements, and facts about each campus. Baruch has been included in the influential guide to American colleges on multiple occasions.
