BOTHELL, Wash. – The UW has been named a “Best Buy” school in the 2012 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges, by Edward Fiske.

According to press notes, the Fiske Guide – in print for more than 25 years – takes into account such criteria as high academic ratings, an inexpensive or moderate price and the quality of student life on campus. A total of 49 institutions received the designation, 24 public and 25 private.

Fiske Guide to Colleges 2012 has an “Index by price” section that groups public and private institutions into four price categories, and also suggests schools that offer outstanding academic quality with “relatively moderate prices.” All the Best Buy schools are in the “inexpensive” or “moderate price” categories, and have four- or five-start academic ratings.
