For the fourth consecutive year, the University of Mary Washington is the only institution in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia named as a “best buy” in the prestigious Fiske Guide to Colleges.
Mary Washington is among 41 public and private institutions designated as a “best buy,” delivering outstanding academics and the most reasonable prices. The selective guidebook features more than 300 colleges and universities. The listing was based on questionnaires sent to administrators and a cross-section of students.
UMW is among 21 public and 20 private schools singled out as “best buys” in the 2014 edition of the guide.
“Mary Washington has gained a reputation as one of the premium public liberal arts colleges in the country and continues to attract bright students from around the globe,” according to the Fiske Guide, which has been compiled for the past 30 years under the direction of Edward B. Fiske, former education editor of the New York Times.
The Fiske Guide is available in bookstores and as an iPad app on iTunes and a web app on CollegeCountdown.com. For more information, visit http://www.collegecountdown.com/.
