UMW named a Fiske best buy for fourth consecutive year

The 2014 Fiske Guide to Colleges named the University of Mary Washington a “best buy” for the fourth year in a row, according to a release from the university.

The Fiske Guide defines a “best buy” as an institution that delivers outstanding academics and the most reasonable prices.

The listing was based on questionnaires sent to administrators and a cross-section of students and featured 41 schools across the U.S.

UMW is also the only institution in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia named as a “best buy.” The “best buy” guide is made up of 21 public and 20 private institutions.

“Mary Washington has gained a reputation as one of the premium public liberal arts colleges in the country and continues to attract bright students from around the globe,” said the guide.
