The Princeton Review has named Emory University to its list of "2012 Best Value Colleges." The annual ranking identifies America’s top undergraduate schools that offer "excellent academics, generous financial aid and/or relatively low cost of attendance."

Princeton Review’s rankings of the 75 best value private schools and 75 public schools were published in USA Today on Feb. 7. Emory has been named a "Best Value" by The Princeton Review in 2011, 2009 and 2008.

Emory is consistently identified as a best value among private universities and colleges — those institutions that are both academically strong and affordable.

The Princeton Review ranking comes on the heels of Emory’s ranking in October 2011 as the 13th "best value" out of 100 top private universities by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine for 2011-2012. 

Emory’s 13th place among the 100 top private universities that exemplify excellent academics while keeping costs to a minimum reflects its long-standing commitment to provide access to its baccalaureate degree programs for well-qualified students across the full range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Kiplinger’s has annually cited Emory as a "best value" since 2007.
