UNCA Listed Among "America's Best Value Colleges"
in New Princeton Review Book
UNC Asheville is one of 77 "best value" undergraduate
institutions in the nation, according to The Princeton Review’s new
college guide "America’s Best Value Colleges" (Random House,
March 2004). The book outlines both public and private colleges with
outstanding academics, low to moderate tuition and generous financial aid
The Princeton Review compiled the book based on quantitative and
qualitative data obtained from administrators and more than 100,000
students at over 500 colleges. "The 77 schools are all great
education deals," said Robert Franek, assistant vice president of The
Princeton Review. "We recommend them to students and parents seeking
the best academic bang for their buck."
Last fall, UNCA was listed among the nation's 20 colleges and
universities that offer the "Best Academic Bang for Your Buck"
in the 2004 edition of The Princeton Review's "The Best 351
Colleges." This is the second year UNCA has earned this designation.
UNCA was also named one of the "Best in the Southeast" in the
very first edition of "The Best Southeastern Colleges."
The University of North Carolina Asheville, a four-year public liberal
arts university located in the mountains of western North Carolina, has
earned national reputation for its programs in the humanities,
undergraduate research and environmental studies. UNCA ranks fourth in the
nation among public liberal arts colleges in the newest U.S. News World
Report’s "America’s Best Colleges." For more information
