ROCK HILL, S.C. - Great value plus rewarding academic and social experiences led WiseChoice Research to include Winthrop in its list of Top Ten Value Schools.
Along with Winthrop, the list of schools with the "best bang for the buck" are Cornell, University of Florida, University of Texas, Catholic University, Truman State University, Montana State University, Soka University, Seattle University and University of Pittsburgh.
“Parents and students often think that smaller, lesser-known schools might not offer a complete college experience, or that larger, well-known schools are not within their financial reach -- but, that is simply not the case,” says WiseChoice president Richard Taylor. “There are a host of excellent colleges that parents may never have heard of, but could end up being the perfect fit for their child. Conversely, students may be surprised to find that the bigger schools can be affordable through various scholarship opportunities. That’s where WiseChoice comes in, by introducing new schools based on a student’s comprehensive profile into the college search mix.”
The WiseChoice Top Ten Value Schools list reflects diversity in locale, size, student population, scholarship opportunities and study emphasis. WiseChoice has identified a few key facts that parents and students may not know about the selected schools. The article notes Winthrop's "lower-than-average tuition, room and board for out-of-state students," along with the "beautiful campus in close proximity to Charlotte, North Carolina."
