GENESEO, N.Y. -- Forbes magazine has listed the State University of New York at Geneseo among its Top 100 Best Buy Colleges for 2011.

Geneseo ranks 62nd on the list, which coincides with the magazine's list of America's Top Colleges for 2011. The Best Buy Colleges were calculated by taking a college's overall quality ranking (Geneseo ranked 412 on the list of 650) and dividing that by the school's in-state tuition and fees. The United States has about 2,400 degree-granting colleges.

The best undergraduate institution rankings were based on five weighted areas: student satisfaction; post-graduate success; student debt; four-year graduation rate; and competitive awards.

The Forbes rankings were prepared by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.
