UW-Green Bay named ‘best bang for the buck’ in Washington Monthly
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay was recently ranked No. 19 in the “Best Bang for the Buck Colleges in the Midwest” category of the 2015 Washington Monthly College Rankings. The rankings were officially released Monday, August 24, 2015 and rates universities on students’ social mobility, civic engagement and research. Founded in 1969, Washington Monthly is a bimonthly nonprofit magazine covering politics, government, culture and the media. The chart that accompanies the guide depicts those schools in the Midwest that are the best value based on “net” (not sticker) price, success of a school based on graduating the students admitted, and whether those students go on to earn at least enough to pay off their loans.
