Clark U. Ranked Among Schools That Give Students “Best Bang for Buck”

Wednesday, February 03, 2016

 

Clark University has been ranked among the best schools that give students the "Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck," according to a new book released by The Princeton Review. 

“Clark offers the research and internship opportunities of a large research institution with the personal instruction and help of a small liberal arts school,” reads a portion of the Clark University profile featured by The Princeton Review.

The Princeton Review chose the schools based on return on investment (ROI) ratings it tallied for 650 schools last year. The ratings were weighted using 40 data points that covered everything from academics, cost, and financial aid to graduation rates, student debt, and alumni salaries and job satisfaction. 

Editors collected the data from the company's surveys of administrators and students in 2014-15 and from payscale.com's surveys of school alumni conducted through April 2015. 

“Clark’s selection as a college that delivers the ‘best bang for the buck’ is not surprising given the opportunities afforded to Clarkies by our Liberal Education & Effective Practice philosophy. LEEP ensures that our students gain real-world problem-solving experience while engaging the consequential issues of 21st century life. These are experiences that are directly related to what our students learn in the classroom. The payoff comes, not only in the form of remuneration in their professional lives, but also in the knowledge that they are making a real difference and meeting the expectations framed by our motto, ‘Challenge Convention. Change Our World," said Don Honeman, Clark's Dean of Admissions & Financial Aid. 

Making an Impact

Clark is also listed among the book's top 25 Best Schools for Making an Impact, a selection that is based on student ratings and responses to survey questions. 

"We highly recommend Clark University, and all of our Colleges That Pay You Back schools. They stand out not only for their outstanding academics but also for their affordability via comparatively low sticker prices and/or generous financial aid to students with need – or both. Students at these colleges also have access to extraordinary career services programs from their freshman year on, plus a lifetime of alumni connections and post-grad support," said Robert Franke, the Princeton Review's Senior VP/Publisher and lead author of the book. 

The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book overall, 1 -200, on a single list. 

Clark University 

Clark was founded in 1887 and is a liberal arts bases research university addressing social and human imperatives on a global scale.
