USF named one of the best value universities

The University of South Florida was named one of the 50 best value colleges for 2009 by the Princeton Review.

The list included 50 public and 50 private institutions chosen based on surveys of administrators and students across the country.

The list ranks the top 10 public and private value universities. The remaining 40 schools were listed in alphabetical order.

The review states that USF is a great value because almost half the total number of undergraduates received some sort of financial aid.
USF also has one of the lowest tuition rates in the country.

Aside from USF, several other Florida schools made the list, including the University of North Florida, Rollins College and University of Central Florida. Florida State University and New College of Florida ranked as top-10 public institutions.

The list is published as part of a partnership between USA Today and the Princeton Review to help prospective students find the best college values during an economic downfall.
