Watch: Swarthmore Named One of Princeton Review's Best Values

For the fifth consecutive year, Swarthmore College was named one of the Princeton Review's best values among private colleges, as discussed on NBC's Today (above).

The Princeton Review chose its "Best Value" schools from analyses of data collected from an initial list of 650 institutions it identified as having excellent academics. The final list features 150 schools nationwide and is based on analyses of more than 30 data points collected across three primary areas: academics, cost of attendance, and financial aid. In addition, surveys of students attending the schools were reviewed and considered. Students shared assessments of their professors, their academic experiences, and their satisfaction with their financial aid awards.
