St. Bonaventure University is ranked No. 5 on U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 list of best values in the North — the second-highest ranking for any regional university in New York.
The U.S. News’ “Great Schools, Great Prices” list of Best Regional Universities in the North includes colleges that offer a full range of master’s degree programs.
St. Bonaventure also ranked 21st out of 187 institutions – up five spots from 2017 – on the magazine’s all-criteria ranking of Best Regional Universities in the North.
“The great respect St. Bonaventure has received over the years was paramount in my decision to seek the presidency here,” said Dr. Dennis DePerro, who started June 1 as president of SBU. “To see us continuing to climb the rankings affirms the great work people have been doing here and how important our strategic plan has been in getting us moving in the right direction.”
The magazine determined the value ranking using three figures from 2016-17: ratio of academic quality to price, need-based aid and average discount.
