Illinois Wesleyan 32nd in Kiplinger's Best Value National Rankings

Oct. 29, 2010

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Illinois Wesleyan University remains among the nation's best values in private higher education, ranked No. 32 among Kiplinger's Personal Finance 100 Best Values in Private Colleges for 2010-11, to appear in the magazine's December issue on newsstands Nov. 9.

Kiplinger's credits these institutions with providing a high-quality education at an affordable price – often with generous financial aid.

Schools on the Kiplinger list were ranked by academic quality and the net price students pay to attend, with quality accounting for two-thirds of the total. Kiplinger's divides the schools into two categories: liberal arts colleges like Illinois Wesleyan that focus on undergraduates, and universities that include graduate students.

Illinois Wesleyan was ranked No. 37 on the list in 2008 and No. 34 in 2009.
