Princeton Review Again Names UW-Eau Claire Among the Nation's Best Value Undergraduate Institutions

RELEASED: April 11, 2006

UW-Eau Claire sealEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is one of the nation's best value undergraduate institutions, according to The Princeton Review.

The New York-based education services company features UW-Eau Claire in the 2007 edition of its book, "America's Best Value Colleges." The guide profiles 150 colleges with excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs. It includes 103 public and 47 private colleges in 40 states.

"It's always satisfying but never surprising to see UW-Eau Claire ranked among the top higher education institutions in the country," said Interim Chancellor Vicki Lord Larson. "UW-Eau Claire has exceptional faculty and staff, an outstanding undergraduate research program, and a dynamic living and learning environment."

The Princeton Review chose schools to include in the book based on data the company obtained from administrators at 646 colleges, and its surveys of students attending them.

The company considered more than 30 factors to rate the colleges in four categories:

  • academics
  • tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants)
  • financial aid (how well colleges meet students' financial need)
  • student borrowing.

The Princeton Review posted a list of the schools in the book on its Web site.
