USA Today, Princeton Review Select Carleton as a “Best Value School”

February 18, 2013

The Feb. 5 edition of USA Today released the annual list of the nation's "Best Value Colleges," calculated by The Princeton Review. The 2013 list identifies 150 colleges (75 public and 75 private) designated as "Best Values" based on assessments that examined more than 30 data points covering academics, cost, and financial aid.

Carleton was touted as an “extremely rigorous liberal arts school.” Citing direct quotes from students, The Princeton Review said that Carleton has a “top-notch” and “cooperative” learning environment and that the professors focus on teaching rather than research. Carleton received an academic rating of 98 out of 100.
