Truman Featured in Princeton Review College Guide, "America’s Best Value Colleges"

Truman is one of the nation’s "best value" undergraduate institutions according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company chose it as one of 81 schools it recommends in the new 2006 edition of its book, America’s Best Value Colleges. The book is a guide to colleges with outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs. It includes public and private colleges and universities in 35 states.

The Princeton Review selected the schools for the book based on data the company obtained from administrators at over 350 colleges, and surveys of students attending them. Says Robert Franek, V.P.- Publishing, The Princeton Review, "We used over 30 factors to rate the colleges in four categories: Academics, Tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants), Financial Aid (how well colleges meet students’ financial need), and Student Borrowing. Bottom line: the 81 schools that met our criteria for this book are all the great college education deals."

America’s Best Value Colleges has three-page profiles on the colleges, advice about applying for admission and financial aid, and a ranking list of the "Top 10 Best Value Colleges" overall. It is one of nearly 200 Princeton Review books published by Random House in a line that includes the annual Best 357 Colleges and Paying for College Without Going Broke. Known for its test-prep courses, books, and college and grad school admissions services, The Princeton Review is an education services company not affiliated with Princeton University or ETS.
