Anderson University Named To 100 Best Buys List

University makes prestigious list for 6th consecutive year

For the 6th consecutive year, Anderson University has been named one of "America's 100 Best College Buys" by Institutional Research and Evaluation. The list is compiled independently to identify those schools that effectively combine quality and affordability. Only a third of the schools on the national list are private universities.

Institutional Research & Evaluation, Inc., based in Rome, Georgia, is an independent research and consulting organization. Each year, it identifies the 100 American colleges and universities providing students the very highest quality education at the lowest cost. No college or university paid to be included in the report. Institutions are included solely on the basis of merit. The survey to determine the 100 best college buys was sent to 1,451 accredited residential four-year institutions.

"AU President Evans Whitaker has said numerous times that we don't design things to earn rankings or places on lists," says AU spokesman Barry Ray. "However, we appreciate being included among some of the top universities in the nation in a list that recognizes the rare combination of quality and affordability."

Anderson University is a selective comprehensive university offering bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees on campus and online. Anderson is ranked in the Top Tier of US News and World Report's America's Best Colleges and is on that publication's list of the 49 "Up & Coming" universities in America. It is also ranked as one of America's "100 Best College Buys."
