The Princeton Review continues to rank Wofford College on its Best Value Colleges list, which is based on return-on-investment (ROI) ratings.
The college is among 209 institutions making the publication’s Best Value Colleges for 2023 list.
“Wofford’s national rankings reflect the commitment of faculty and staff to student success and a desire to constantly improve the Wofford experience,” says Dr. Nayef Samhat, Wofford’s president. “This recognition is the result of the dedication of everyone working across our campus.”
More than 650 colleges and universities were surveyed for the 2023 list. The institutions chosen had the publication’s highest ROI ratings. Colleges were also evaluated on 40 data points, including academics, affordability and career preparation.
Institutions on the list are not ranked hierarchically.
The Princeton Review, however, does rank institutions in seven categories, including the Top 20 Best Alumni Networks for private colleges and universities. Wofford ranks No. 15.
Wofford is routinely recognized as a best value by other national publications as well, including The New York Times and U.S. News & World Report. Ninety-five percent of the college’s students receive some form of financial assistance. In 2021, the college received a $150 million gift to its endowment from 1959 graduate Jerry Richardson. Need-based scholarships and experiential learning opportunities will receive $110 million of that gift.
