Susquehanna University delivers a top educational value, according to Washington Monthly's 2015 Best Bang for the Buck college rankings, which place the school among the top 20 percent of colleges in the Northeast.
Susquehanna ranks #73 out of 402 colleges and universities in the Northeast in Washington Monthly's The Other College Guide: A Roadmap for the Right School for You.
Now in its fourth year, the Best Bang for the Buck rankings recognize colleges and universities that do the best job of helping lower- and middle-income students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.
The rankings chart on the Washington Monthly website shows which schools in the Northeast are the best value for the money based on "net" (not sticker) price, how well they do graduating the students they admit, and the ability of students to pay off their loans.
A detailed methodology can be found here.
The list ranks more than 1,540 colleges and universities and presents them in five different geographic regions. Susquehanna is included in the Northeast region, which includes other universities in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.
NBC-affiliated television station WBRE interviewed Madeleine Rhyneer, vice president for enrollment and marketing, about the honor. Watch the story here.
