St. Olaf named a ‘Best Buy’ by Fiske Guide to Colleges

St. Olaf College has been named a “Best Buy” school in the 2018 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges.

For more than 30 years, Fiske Guide to Colleges has chosen a select group of schools, noted for quality academic offerings and affordable cost, for its annual “Best Buy” list.

St. Olaf is one of 18 private colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and the UK named to this year’s “Best Buy” list.

As this CNBC story notes, the schools on the list “combine affordable costs and solid academics.” In addition to being one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, St. Olaf has a long tradition of meeting the demonstrated need of all admitted students.

The Fiske Guide to Colleges, created by a former education editor for The New York Times, Edward Fiske, provides profiles of “more than 300 of the best and most interesting institutions in the nation.”
