Claremont, Calif. (February 4, 2020) — The Princeton Review
names Pitzer College among its list of the 200 Best
Value Colleges for 2020. The project annually names the
undergraduate institutions the education services company recommends as
offering the best ROI (Return on Investment).
Princeton Review selected this year’s list of 200 schools based on its surveys
of administrators at 656 colleges in 2018–19. Survey topics covered academics,
cost, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt and alumni
support. The Princeton Review also factored in data from its surveys of
students attending the colleges, as well as PayScale.com surveys of alumni of
the schools about their starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction.
schools we chose as our Best Value Colleges for 2020 comprise only 7 percent of
the nation’s four-year colleges,” noted Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “They
are truly distinctive and diverse in their programs, size, region and type, yet
they are similar in three areas. Every school we selected offers outstanding
academics, generous financial aid and/or relative low cost of attendance and
stellar career services. We recommend them highly to college applicants and
parents seeking schools that are academically top-notch and committed to making
their programs affordable. These colleges are also standouts at guiding their
students to rewarding future.”
its other rankings, The Princeton Review has also named Pitzer #1 in Most
Politically Active Students, #5 Most Active Student Government, #6 Best Campus
Food, #13 Best Dorms, #18 Most Engaged in Community Service. It also recognized Pitzer in its Best
Western, The Best 386 College and Colleges That Creates Futures List.
