Only 7 Percent of Four-Year Colleges Nationwide Included in the Guide
Baruch College is one of the nation’s best colleges for students seeking an excellent education with great career resources and at an affordable price, according to The Princeton Review.
The education services company recommended Baruch College in the 2018 edition of its annual guide: “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.”
Only 7 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges made it into this year’s book, which analyzed data from more than 650 colleges.
In its profile of Baruch, The Princeton Review said students gain a “quality education that won’t break the proverbial bank” due to low tuition and generous financial aid. It added that Baruch provides several “amazing resources such as peer counseling, the writing center and tutoring,” and that undergrads can “easily tap into a strong alumni network” to gain access to career resources. The Princeton Review also praised Baruch’s “excellent professors who clearly have a passion for what they teach.”
“These schools were bona fide standouts for the return they deliver on one’s college investment,” said Robert Franek, lead author and The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief. “They offer stellar academics, generous aid services from day one plus a lifetime of alumni connections.”
The selections for this year’s book were based on a comprehensive analysis of data from surveys of administrators at more than 650 colleges in 2016-17. Survey topics covered academics, cost, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt, and alumni support. The methodology also factored in PayScale.com data collected through April 2017 from alumni surveys covering starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction.
