SUNY Geneseo Again Named Best Buy in 2010 ‘Fiske Guide to Colleges’

GENESEO, N.Y. – The highly respected “Fiske Guide to Colleges” has named The State University of New York at Geneseo among the country’s 44 “Best Buy” schools in the publication’s 2010 edition.   Inclusion in the group is based on the quality of academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.

“Indeed, this public institution attracts high achievers from around the nation,” the guide notes.  “Responsive, attentive professors help compensate for the long winters and somewhat isolated location.  And excellent pre-professional programs in disciplines such as education and business have been making it harder to win admission to this most bucolic campus of the New York State university system.”

Published by former New York Times education editor Edward Fiske, the guide highlights Geneseo as a preferred option for students who want the feel of a private college at a public-university price.

“This Fiske Guide distinction is something Geneseo has enjoyed in several previous editions of the guide and we’re always delighted to be there,” said Bill Caren, vice president for enrollment management at Geneseo.  “We continue to see increasingly academically talented students apply and attend and that is a testament to the strong commitment our faculty have in teaching undergraduate students.”

Published by Sourcebooks, Inc., the Fiske Guide accepts no consulting, advertising or other fees from colleges and has no outside relationship with colleges working on its behalf.  The goal of the guide is to help future students select the best colleges to reach their own goals in a price range that is manageable for their personal circumstances.
