Texas Tech named 2012 Fiske ‘Best Buy School'

From Texas Tech University:

Texas Tech University was one of just 24 public institutions named a "Best Buy School" in the 2012 Fiske Guide to Colleges.

The recently published guide designates 49 institutions overall as "Best Buy Schools," based on the quality of academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.

All of the "Best Buy Schools" fall into the inexpensive or moderate price category, and most have four- or five-star academic ratings.

"Texas Tech has one of the lowest in-state and out-of-state tuitions in the country, making it a great value nationally," said Guy Bailey, Texas Tech president. "We have an outstanding, talented faculty that is dedicated to our mission of producing the very best graduates and securing our positive impact on society."

The Fiske Guide to Colleges also provides an independent perspective on the distinctive personalities of the best and most interesting colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain. More than 300 schools are highlighted based on a broad range of subjects including student body, academics, social life and financial aid

Edward B. Fiske served for 17 years as education editor of the New York Times, during which time he realized that college-bound students and their families needed better information on which to base their educational choices. He wrote the best-selling annual, the Fiske Guide to Colleges, to help them.
