Princeton Review gives DU high marks for value, impact

The University of Denver was recently recognized in the 2016 edition of The Princeton Review’s list of 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck. The edition features the nation’s best colleges and universities based on academic quality, financial aid and sending graduates on to rewarding careers.

One of the most pressing concerns among prospective students today is a college’s ability to propel them into desirable careers in the changing job market. To gauge schools’ performance in this area, The Princeton Review analyzed more than 40 data points from more than 650 colleges, tallying an ROI (return on investment) rating for each school.

“Being highlighted as one of 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck reinforces the investments DU continues to make in the quality of the student experience,” says Tom Willoughby, vice chancellor of enrollment. “Our new strategic plan, DU IMPACT 2025, is poised to elevate the value of a DU degree even further.”

The Princeton Review also rated DU No. 19 on its list of Best Schools for Making an Impact. The ranking was based on student satisfaction regarding community service opportunities, sustainability efforts and overall student engagement on campus.

“At DU, community-engaged opportunities enable students to advance learning while helping to address important public issues,” says Anne DePrince, director of DU’s Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning. “The new strategic plan will continue to help students build lives of purpose through service learning in support of our wider community.”
