Geneseo Named to Princeton Review’s List Of 50 ‘Best Value’ Public Colleges for 2011

GENESEO, N.Y. - The Princeton Review has again named the State University of New York at Geneseo one of the nation's top 50 "Best Value" public colleges and universities. The education service company has joined USA TODAY in releasing results of the report, "The Best College Values for 2011." Geneseo has consistently been included on the list.

The list, which features 100 schools total - 50 public and 50 private college and universities - is posted on the websites of The Princeton Review and USA TODAY.

Of the 50 schools chosen in each category (public and private), the top ten are ranked 1 to 10 and the remaining 40 are listed in alphabetical order and are unranked.

"Geneseo's inclusion on this list and others like it affirms the strong emphasis our faculty places on undergraduate teaching and research," said Bill Caren, associate vice president for enrollment services at Geneseo. "Students and parents looking for that ‘best fit' college will find Geneseo very attractive to those looking for a strong academic program in a highly supportive environment."

The list is based on criteria covering academics, cost of attendance and financial aid. The methodology examined more than 30 factors using data from the company's surveys of administrators and students at 650 colleges with strong academic programs. Most of the data analyzed came from surveys conducted from fall 2009 through fall 2010. All cost and financial aid data came from fall 2010 surveys.
