JMU cited as a best value college
James Madison University's students find an environment that is "comfortable and conducive to learning," according to surveys conducted by the Princeton Review, which profiled JMU in "The Best Value Colleges: 2013 Edition."
JMU is one of 150 institutions – 75 public and 75 private undergraduate institutions – included in the book, which was published Feb. 5. Schools were selected from 650 colleges at which the Princeton Review conducted institutional and student surveys for the project in 2011-12.
The annual guide features profiles of the schools with detailed information about their academics, cost and financial aid. Of the 75 schools in each group, the top 10 colleges are ranked 1 to 10, and the remaining 65 are listed in alphabetical order and unranked.
JMU was listed in the Princeton Review's "Best Value Colleges" guides in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
