Nebraska ranked a best value by Princeton Review

.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is again featured in The Princeton Review as one of the nation’s best colleges for delivering return on investment to students.

Inclusion in the 2019 edition of The Princeton Review's “Best Value Colleges” is based upon the university’s challenging academics, affordability and strong career prospects for its graduates.

"The Princeton Review's ranking recognizes one of our university's strengths: providing an outstanding, affordable education to students from Nebraska and beyond," said Amber Williams, assistant vice chancellor for academic services and enrollment management. "Our students collaborate with their peers and professors to do amazing things even before they graduate, like launching businesses, managing nonprofits and making research discoveries that have never existed before — all for one of the lowest tuition costs in the Big Ten."

Nebraska pairs a practical focus on job placement with rigorous research and the prestige of a Big Ten institution, according to the online profile included with the Jan. 29 announcement of the 209 schools chosen for the edition. More than 650 colleges were evaluated by The Princeton Review.

Nebraska was among only 11 institutions to be listed from the Cornhusker State and neighboring states. It was one of nine Big 10 institutions that made the list.

The Princeton Review is a tutoring, test preparation and college admissions services company that annually publishes a number of college guides, such as “Colleges That Create Futures." Its headquarters are in New York City. It is not affiliated with Princeton University.

“The Best Value Colleges” was titled “Colleges That Pay You Back” from 2015 to 2018.

“Only 7 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges made it into this book,” said Robert Franek, lead author of the publication and editor-in-chief for The Princeton Review. “We salute the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and all our 'Best Value Colleges.' They stand out for their outstanding academics and their affordability via generous financial aid to students with need and/or comparatively low sticker prices. Students at these colleges also have access to extraordinary career services from their freshman year on, plus a lifetime of valuable alumni support.”
