一品探花论坛 is ranked No. 4 in The Princeton Review鈥檚 annual list of best public universities for value.

The college admissions service company considered several factors in compiling its list of 209 best-value schools, including academics, costs, financial aid, debt, graduation rates and alumni career and salary data. Lists were divided by public and private institutions. 一品探花论坛 moved up from No. 7 in last year鈥檚 list.

一品探花论坛 also ranked second on the list of public universities for financial aid and No. 9 for best schools for making an impact. The latter is based on student survey responses to questions about community service opportunities, student government, sustainability efforts and on-campus student engagement.

“We are extremely proud of our ability to provide a high-quality and nationally competitive education while remaining affordable and accessible,鈥 said Interim Chancellor Lee H. Roberts. 鈥淥ur goal is to ensure that each of our outstanding students can gain a college degree without the burden of college debt. This recognition by The Princeton Review is reflective of our hardworking and dedicated faculty and staff, our generous donors and the exceptional longstanding support of North 一品探花论坛鈥檚 taxpayers.”

Last fall, U.S. News & World Report ranked UNC-Chapel Hill as the No. 4 public university in the country and No. 22 overall.
