Publication Date: 10/27/2011
Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has released its annual rankings of the best values in private institutions based on outstanding academic s and great economic value. Rhodes College ranks 36 on the list of 100 liberal arts colleges.
Rhodes placed because of its high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, good student-to-faculty ratio, excellent on-campus resources and overall great value.
Private colleges can be pricey for most families, according to the College Board, but the net price—the amount families actually pay—runs far less, making even the most elite schools affordable for students who qualify for financial aid.
“The institutions on Kiplinger’s rankings for best value in private colleges represent schools that provide high-quality academics as well as affordable cost even in these tough times,” said Jane Bennett Clark, senior associate editor for Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. “With money tight and the college choice so important, you have every reason to expect the best bang for your buck.”
