Princeton Review labels UTM 'Best Value College'
UTM is one of the nation's "Best Value" colleges and universities, according to The Princeton Review. The Massachusetts-based education services company profiles UTM in its just-published book "The Best Value Colleges: 2013 Edition" and on www.PrincetonReview.com.
UTM joined the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, as the only public Tennessee universities listed. This marks the second year that UTM earned the "Best Value" designation from The Princeton Review.
"Our faculty and staff work hard to ensure our students experience a safe, academically rigorous and socially inviting learning community, offering one of the best collegiate values in the nation," said Dr. Tom Rakes, UTM chancellor. "In addition to being a best value, UTM is recognized as having the highest graduation rate amount public universities in Middle and West Tennessee."
Editors at The Princeton Review note, "UTM offers financial assistance to students based on need, academic achievement, character and leadership ability. Those with top academic credentials can compete for Honors Programs scholarships, and others who meet established academic criteria are eligible to receive the Tennessee Education Lottery HOPE Scholarship. There is also the respected University Scholars Program for qualified students. The administration is respected, and 'takes student opinion into account when making campus changes.'"
According to The Princeton Review, schools that made the "Best Value Colleges for 2013" list are exceptional because they provide stellar academics at an affordable cost-either via a comparatively low sticker price or generous financial aid, or both.
The Princeton Review "Best Value Colleges" are based on data gathered from institutional and student opinion surveys conducted from fall 2011 through fall 2012. The surveys were conducted at 650 colleges and universities the Princeton Review considers the nation's academically best undergraduate institutions. The selection process considers data on more than 30 factors in academics, cost of attendance and financial aid.
The Princeton Review debuted its "Best Value Colleges" list in 2004. It previously published an annual book titled "America's Best Value Colleges" from 2004 to 2007. The Princeton Review (www.PrincetonReview.com) is not affiliated with Princeton University and it is not a magazine.
