Bryn Mawr College has been named one of the nation’s 50 “Best Value” private colleges by The Princeton Review.

In its profile of Bryn Mawr on USA Today’s website, the editors at The Princeton Review said, “Classes here are challenging, boasting some outstanding professors and an impressive student-faculty ratio (8:1!)”

The “Best Value Colleges” list, reported in the January 8th print edition of USA Today and on, features a total of 100 schools in all: 50 public and 50 private colleges and universities.

“We’re glad to be recognized for our long-standing commitment to academic excellence and student diversity. Particularly during a period of serious economic crisis, we are committed to doing all that we can to make a world-class liberal arts education attainable for exceptional young women,” said Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe.

The Princeton Review selected the institutions as its “best value” choices for 2009 on the basis of its surveys of administrators and students at more than 650 public and private colleges and universities. The selection criteria covered more than 30 factors in three areas: academics, costs of attendance, and financial aid. Lists tallies were made using the most recently reported data from each institution for its 2007-08 academic year.
