Baylor ranked among nation's best private schools values

Jan. 9, 2009

With the economy down, it's more important than ever that students (and their parents) find the best value possible when selecting a university. That's why I was glad to read this morning that for the second year in a row, Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine has named Baylor among its top 50 "Best Values in Private Colleges and Universities."

Even better: In what's really the bottom line -- total cost -- Baylor was the nation's second most affordable university among the nation's top 50 private schools (again for the second year in a row). Total cost factored in tuition, books, fees, and room and board -- the big costs one can expect for a year of college.

As we've noted before, it's nice to see people outside the University recognizing the value of a Baylor education.
