America's Best Value Colleges
RELEASED: April 26, 2007
DANVILLE, KY—Centre College is one of the nation's best value undergraduate institutions, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features Centre in the new 2008 edition of its book, America's Best Value Colleges. The guide profiles 165 colleges chosen for their excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and/or relatively low costs of attendance.
In its narrative profile on in the book, The Princeton Review's editors commend Centre for its "intense academic atmosphere and personal interaction between students and their impressively dedicated professors."
The Princeton Review selected the schools for the book based on data it obtained from administrators at more than 650 colleges during the 2005-06 academic year and its surveys of students attending the schools. Says Robert Franek, vice president of publishing at The Princeton Review, "We considered over 30 factors to identify our 'best value' colleges. They covered four areas: academics, tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants), Financial Aid (how well colleges meet students' financial need), and Student Borrowing. The 90 public and 75 private colleges we chose for this edition offer a terrific education, plus they have impressive records of meeting students' needs for financial aid. We highly recommend them as America's best college education deals for 2007."
