2016 Fiske Guide to Colleges Best Buy School

The creation of a former New York Times education editor, the Fiske Guide has been a respected college search tool used by parents, college-bound students, and their guidance counselors for 30 years.

The UI is one of only 20 public universities from the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada on the list and one of two Big Ten schools included (along with Purdue University).

To receive a "Best Buy" designation, schools had to have high academic rankings, an inexpensive or moderate price, and a high quality of student life on campus. In all, 44 schools received the "Best Buy" designation, including 24 private institutions.
