A-B College Only WV School Named in "Great School, Great Price" Category
Alderson-Broaddus College has been named one of the Best Regional Colleges in the South in the 2011 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” released recently by U.S. News & World Report. A-B College is ranked 22nd in this year’s edition. The institution is also ranked 7th in the South in the category of “Great Schools, Great Prices,” the only school in West Virginia to be named.
“Once again, the U.S. News & World Report college analysis has appropriately selected Alderson-Broaddus College for achievement and recognition,” said Dr. J. Michael Clyburn, President of the college. “The report supports the school's identity as a college with smaller class sizes (79%), personal attention, caring environment, and a high percentage (86%) of full-time faculty.”
Alderson-Broaddus College’s honor of being the only West Virginia College to be named in the “Great Schools, Great Prices” indicates that A-B College students are receiving a great value in relation to the cost of attendance. Only schools ranked in, or near, the top half of their categories are included.
“The report also accurately portrays A-B College as an affordable southern regional college where students (91%) experience low tuition and generous need-based grants,” explained Dr. Clyburn. “Report data provide undeniable evidence that A-B College offers value and personal support for students pursuing quality higher education.”
Highlights of the college rankings will be published in the September issue of U.S.News & World Report, available on newsstands August 31. The 2011 Best Colleges guidebook will be on newsstands August 24. For more information on the America’s Best Colleges 2011 Rankings, log on to www.usnews.com
