Date Released: 1/8/2009

Purchase College is once again included in Princeton Review’s "Top 100: Best Value Colleges for 2009."

The education services and test-prep company’s annual list ranks the top 10 public and private colleges and universities and lists the others in alphabetical order.

Of the USA's 643 public four-year institutions and 1, 533 private four year-campuses, the Princeton Review analyzes data from approximately 650 campuses that it considers the best.

The selection looked at academics, costs and financial aid, using the most recently reported data from each institution for its 2008-09 year.

According to Ben Zelevansky, who directs Princeton Review’s data analysis, "This is a list of schools that provide the best balance of strong education and a reasonable cost of attendance."

"We are proud to be included in this ranking.  It is a testament to our terrific students,  the quality of the total educational experience we provide at Purchase and the commitment and dedication of our esteemed faculty," said Thomas J. Schwarz, President of Purchase College.
