Quality and Career Prep Earn Truman Praise


The Princeton Review has again recognized Truman as one of the nation’s top colleges for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation at an affordable price.

Truman was named as a Best Value College for 2020 in a feature recently released by the education services company. It profiles 200 schools in an unranked list that The Princeton Review selected from 656 institutions it considered and surveyed for this year’s project.

The Princeton Review chose its Best Value Colleges for 2020 based on data the company collected from its surveys of college administrators in 2018-19. The company also factored in data from its surveys of students attending the schools as well as PayScale.com surveys of alumni of the schools about their starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction figures.

In all, The Princeton Review considered more than 40 data points to tally return on investment ratings of the colleges that determined its selection of the 200 schools for the 2020 project. Topics covered everything from academics, cost and financial aid to graduation rates, student debt, alumni salaries and job satisfaction.
