Marist a College that Adds the Most Value
POUGHKEEPSIE (July 16, 2015) – Money Magazine has named Marist College one of 'The 50 Colleges That Add the Most Value.' Marist ranks 34th on this list from the top personal finance magazine. The College ranks 167 on the magazine's list of the 736 'Best Colleges' in the nation.
With the 'Most Value' list, Money "ranked colleges based solely on value-added grades for graduation rates, earnings, and student loan repayment..."
The 'Best Colleges' list looks at "which of the country's roughly 1,500 four-year colleges and universities deliver the most value—that is, a great education, at an affordable price, that helps students launch promising careers."
Writing in The Washington Post, prominent higher education columnist and author Jeffrey J. Selingo writes that "Money tries to crack the code on answering the ROI (return on investment) question, and of all the rankings out there, comes the closest."
