Princeton Review Names SSU as One of Top 77 "Best Value" Colleges

Sonoma State University is among the top 77 "best value" colleges in the country, according to the Princeton Review's 2004 edition of "America's Best Value Colleges."

The list profiles the top 77 schools that the education services company chose for outstanding academics, low-to-moderate tuition and fees, and generous financial aid packages.

The Princeton Review compiled the list based on quantitative and qualitative data it obtained from more than 500 colleges, and from surveys of students attending them.

In addition to SSU, five other members of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) were selected by the Princeton Review. COPLAC-member institutions feature small classes, innovations in teaching, personal interactions with faculty, opportunities for
faculty-supervised research and supportive atmospheres. Only one institution is chosen from each state; Sonoma State University represents California.

The other COPLAC campuses on Princeton Review's list are The Evergreen State College, Mary Washington College, New College of Florida, Truman State University and the University of North Carolina at Asheville. One other CSU campus, California Polytechnic Institute, San Luis Obispo, made the list.
