Kiplinglinger’s names UW-La Crosse a “best value”7640396
LA CROSSE, Wis. — A quality education at a great price. It’s offered in La Crosse.
UW-L is once again included on ‘Kiplinger’s Personal Finance list of 100 best values’ in public colleges in the country. It lists the top four-year schools combining outstanding education with economic value.
UW-L comes in at number 62 based on cost for in-state students, number 52 for out of state students.
The university did slip a bit in the rankings this year, something the Chancellor says may be due to less state support coming in. “Then tuition has to go up. On a list of value what it’s about is the high quality at a low price. Our price is not quite as low as it once was, although it’s still pretty good, that’s why we’re in the top 100,” says Chancellor Joe Gow.
UW-Madison ranks 13th on the new list. UW-Eau Claire is at number 82. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill earned the number one spot.
