Top Value School

February 3, 2016

Bradley University was named one of The Princeton Review’s best colleges for students who want the best education at the best price. The publication featured the University in the 2016 Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.

The Princeton Review analyzed schools’ academics, cost, financial aid, graduation rates, student debt and other factors to determine the schools with the best return on investment. Bradley University frequently appears in The Princeton Review’s annual “best college” rankings, which recognizes the top 15 percent of four-year institutions in the U.S.

“I’m proud The Princeton Review recognizes our work to provide students with a cutting-edge education at the most affordable cost,” said President Gary R. Roberts ’70. “I felt Bradley University’s commitment to that goal when I was a student, and that continues to be a top priority for me as President.”

In addition to high marks from The Princeton Review, U.S.News & World Report consistently ranks the University among the Midwest’s top 10 universities. The publication ranked Bradley No. 4 in its 2015 best colleges report.

The Colleges That Pay You Back project is an expansion of The Princeton Review's annual Best Value Colleges book and list first published in 2004. The company expanded it in response to findings of its 2015 College Hopes & Worries Survey that polled 12,000 college applicants and parents.
