Baylor named "Best Buy" in college guide

Posted:

WACO - Baylor University is one of only 44 public and private colleges and universities in the United States, Canada and Great Britain - and the only Texas Big 12 institution - named a "Best Buy" in the 2010 edition of The Fiske Guide to Colleges, a best-selling independent source of information for college-bound students and their parents.

The Fiske Guide qualified Baylor as a "Best Buy" based on its ratings of the quality of the university's academic programs in relation to the cost of attendance. Fiske researchers combined the cost data with academic quality and campus lifestyle information about each college and university to determine which institutions offered the best values in higher education. 

"One of the most important decisions a family will help their son or daughter to make is where he or she will attend college. We are pleased that Baylor is being recognized for providing students and families an outstanding value in higher education," said Dr. Reagan M. Ramsower, vice president for finance and administration who oversees enrollment management at Baylor.

Baylor is one of only four Texas universities - all private - to be named to Fiske's "Best Buy" list. Other than Baylor, only one Big 12 institution - Iowa State University - made the list.

The Fiske Guide to Colleges 2010 explores the academic climates and the social and extracurricular scenes at the "best and most interesting" schools in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. For more information about The Fiske Guide to Colleges 2010, visit http://www.sourcebookscollege.com and http://fiskeguide.com.

After the prosecution rested just before 11 a.m., it was the defense's turn to call up witnesses. Petetan's attorney's stressed to the jury that they were...More >>
