If you are looking to maximize dollars spent on higher education, look no further
than Elizabeth City State University. Washington Monthly recently released the Best
Bang for the Buck rankings in their book, "The Other College Guide: A Roadmap for
the Right School for You." In order to determine the rankings, the editors considered
net price, the institutions' graduation rate and the rate at which the graduates can
pay off their loans.
The Triangle Business Journal proudly reported North Carolina had 10 of the top 20
"Best Bang for the Buck" schools in the southeast. ECSU fared quite well in the publication
with a #17 ranking. This college guide has been published in time to help prospective
students select an institution for fall enrollment. Washington Monthly editors said
this college guide provides a set of guidelines to help students find the right school
and excel once they arrive. Chancellor Stacey Franklin Jones is confident that ECSU
is the right institution for many freshmen and transfer students.
""We're proud of our standing as the most affordable academic success University in
North Carolina," Chancellor Stacey Franklin Jones said.
