Truman Listed on “Best Value Colleges for 2011”

Truman is one of the nation’s 50 “Best Value” public colleges and universities according to The Princeton Review, which teamed with USA Today to present its list, “The Princeton Review Best Value Colleges for 2011.” Truman is the only Missouri public university listed.

The list features 100 schools in all—50 public and 50 private colleges and universities—and was released Feb. 22.

The Princeton Review chose the schools on its “Best Value Colleges for 2011” list based on criteria covering academics, cost of attendance and financial aid. The methodology examined more than 30 factors using data from the company’s surveys of administrators and students at 650 colleges with strong academic programs. Most of the data came from surveys conducted from Fall 2009 through Fall 2010; all cost and financial aid data came from Fall 2010 surveys.

USA Today’s site features a database that allows users to view in-depth details about the schools, including Truman, by clicking on an interactive map to explore criteria including cost of attendance and financial aid data, enrollment size, location and an analysis of why each school was chosen as a “Best Value” college.
