UNCW again named a "Best Value" public college for fourth consecutive year

UNC Wilmington recently received another prestigious accolade by the Princeton Review, naming our institution one of America's "Best Value" public colleges, now for the fourth consecutive year! UNCW has been included among 150 institutions from across the nation in Princeton Review's "Best Value Colleges: 2012 edition," and lauded by the publication's editors for remaining "true to its small school roots" despite its growing population.

"It is a great honor for UNC Wilmington to again be chosen by the Princeton Review as one of its "Best Value" universities," said Chancellor Gary L. Miller. "The UNC system boasts one of the lower in-state tuitions in the nation, and we strive to match that with the highest quality instruction and hands-on opportunities for our students to participate in undergraduate research, high-level scholarship and outreach/community involvement projects. This distinction from the Princeton Review is a tribute to the dedication of UNCW's faculty and staff to the success of our students."

650 colleges and universities were chosen by the company to be reviewed for this tremendous honor. Recipients were selected based not only on institutional data but by student opinion surveys as well.
