Longwood named one of Kiplinger’s “100 Best Values in Public Colleges”

February 13, 2008

Longwood University is considered one of the country’s top values in public colleges, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.  Longwood is ranked 91st on the “100 Best Values in Public Colleges,” an annual report that ranks colleges and universities that are noteworthy for their combination of top-flight academics and affordable costs.

“Longwood continues to be recognized for its exceptional value,” said Bob Chonko, dean of admissions at Longwood.  “Those who have had the Longwood experience know how unique our university is – small classes, outstanding faculty, private atmosphere, public cost!  The real value here is the growth, experience and outcomes our students encounter in and out of the classroom at Longwood University.”

The rankings are based on data provided by more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities. Also considered are several measures of academic quality as well as cost and financial aid. Other Virginia public universities that made the Kiplinger’s report include the University of Virginia, the University of Mary Washington, and James Madison University. The list appears in the February issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
