When Money magazine recently analyzed the roughly 2,000 four-year colleges and universities in the United States, it determined that fewer than a third – a select group that includes Stonehill College – meet the highest standards in terms of education quality, affordability, alumni earnings and graduation rates.
As a result, Stonehill was selected for the magazine’s list of 705 colleges that provide the best value for your tuition cost. The list singles out schools that deliver a great education at an affordable price and that help students launch promising careers.
The magazine gathered information from U.S. Department of Education, Peterson’s, PayScale.com, MONEY/College Measures calculations and ranked the schools on 24 factors in three categories: educational quality, affordability, and alumni success. Stonehill’s 136th ranking puts it in the top 20 percent of the nation’s best colleges and universities.
