Chancellor congratulates New College of Florida for "Best Value" rating by Princeton Review

TALLAHASSEE — Chancellor Mark B. Rosenberg today congratulated New College of Florida for its No. 1 ranking by Princeton Review as the Best Value in higher education among public universities.

Princeton Review made the announcement today on CNN. The University of North Florida was No. 5 on the Best Values list in the company's "America's Best Value Colleges: 2007 Edition."

"New College of Florida is an outstanding institution, offering one of the best educations available at any price," Rosenberg said. "It is a tribute to the dedication of President Gordon Michalson Jr. and the faculty and staff of New College that they can provide such a high quality instruction while charging one of the lowest tuition rates of any college nationwide."

Rosenberg said that having two institutions in Princeton Review's Top 5 demonstrates the good value the State University System of Florida offers the citizens of this state.

"It is no surprise that the State University System is well-represented in the Best Values ranking," Rosenberg said. "Our institutions strive for the highest quality possible, and they consistently are ranked at the bottom in tuition and fees. The Princeton Review designations highlight the fact that Florida's public universities give a lot in return for the investment made by the Legislature and by students and their families."
