NCSU was just ranked one of the best value colleges in the nation

Your wallet will thank you

North Carolina State University was ranked one of the best value schools in the nation, according to a new ranking.

We beat rival schools like Wake Forest and Clemson to get to our spot of 76 out of 1200 in the US.

Kiplinger, a business publisher based in Washington DC, revealed the top colleges that give value for money – a ranking based on data on admissions, the total cost of studying there, financial aid available, debt upon graduation and expected salary.

They narrowed down over 1,000 four-year institutions into the top 300 public, private and liberal arts schools. We have included the top 50 colleges in the chart below.

It’s nice to get some well-deserved national attention. We know we’re the best, and it’s about time others catch on.

Maybe next time they can do a list that takes into account how well-rounded a school is. Throw in our average athlete GPA and attendance. See where this is headed?
