Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — LSU Named a 2011-2012 Best-Value Public College by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance
LSU has been once again ranked as one of the 100 best values in public higher education, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. The ranking cites four-year schools that combine outstanding education with economic value.
For in-state student value, LSU ranks 72 overall and for out-of-state student value, LSU is ranked 91.
“Being consistently ranked by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance shows that LSU offers a great, quality education for a good price,” said LSU Chancellor Michael Martin. “In tough economic times, we have fought hard to maintain that quality for our students and the citizens of Louisiana. As Louisiana’s flagship institution, it is important that we preserve the covenant we have with our students to offer the highest quality education we can, and we remain committed to doing so.”
LSU’s value for in-state students places it ahead of colleges such as the University of Tennessee, University of Missouri, University of Alabama, University of Maryland, Oklahoma State University, University of Oregon and Louisiana Tech University. For out-of-state students, LSU’s ranking is ahead of universities such as Oklahoma State, Louisiana Tech, Colorado State University, Oregon and the University of Arizona.
