GC on Kiplinger's top 100 colleges list

GOSHEN — Goshen College has been ranked 77th in the list of top 100 best values among all private liberal arts colleges by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

The magazine recently announced the top private universities and liberal arts colleges that combine outstanding quality with affordability, according to information from Goshen college.

“We are thrilled to be recognized once again by Kiplinger’s as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation,” said James Townsend, vice president for enrollment management and marketing. “I believe our commitment to small classes, personal attention and affordability make us one of the best options for students in Indiana and around the nation.”

According to Goshen College, Kiplinger’s chooses from a pool of more than 600 schools and creates two lists — the top 100 best values in private colleges and the 100 best values in private liberal arts colleges, which Goshen is on. The schools on the two lists were ranked according to academic quality and affordability, with quality accounting for the majority of the total. Criteria included cost and financial aid, competitiveness, academic support, graduation rates and student indebtedness.

The rankings are available online at www.kiplinger.com/links/college, and will be published in the magazine’s December issue on newsstands Nov. 5.
