GENESEO, N.Y. - The Princeton Review has named the State University of New York at Geneseo one of the nation's top 75 "Best Value" public colleges and universities. The education service company has joined USA TODAY in releasing results of the report, "The Best Value Colleges: 2012 Edition." Geneseo has consistently been included on the list.
"Geneseo brings together dedicated faculty, strong academic programs and a caring campus environment that allows students to succeed," said Provost Carol Long. "Recognition as a ‘best value' college further demonstrates that students can get the best of all worlds right here."
Of the 75 schools chosen in each category (public and private), the top ten are ranked 1 to 10 and the remaining 65 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. "We are pleased with the attention that we have been receiving from families who are looking for a strong academic program combined with reasonable costs."
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 2010 through fall 2011. All cost and financial aid data came from fall 2011 surveys.
