Princeton Review Ranks Gonzaga Among Nation’s Best-Value Colleges
Gonzaga University is among the nation’s best-value universities for students seeking outstanding academics and superb career preparation at an affordable price with generous financial aid, The Princeton Review announced.
The education services company includes Gonzaga in the 2017 edition of its book, “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.” The company posted its school profiles for this book and its seven categories of ranking lists online: www.princetonreview.com/colleges-pay-you-back. The book does not rank the colleges, 1-to-200, on its alphabetically ordered list.
The Princeton Review developed a “Return on Investment” methodology to create its ratings that includes academics, cost, and financial aid to graduation rates, student debt, and alumni salaries and job satisfaction. Its editors also culled data from its surveys of administrators and students in 2015-16 and from PayScale.com’s surveys of school alumni conducted through April 2016.
“We highly recommend Gonzaga University, and all of our ‘Colleges That Pay You Back schools.’ They stand out not only for their outstanding academics but also for their affordability via comparatively low sticker prices and/or generous financial aid to students with need – or both,” said Robert Franek, lead author of the book. “Students at these colleges also have access to extraordinary career services programs from their freshman year on, plus a lifetime of alumni connections and post-grad support.”
Gonzaga also is ranked No. 4 for “Students Pack the Stadiums,” No. 8 in the “Everyone Plays Intramural Sports” category, and No. 13 for “Most Politically Active Students.”
