Radford University has once again been recognized as a “Best Bang for the Buck” institution in the annual College Guide and Rankings published by Washington Monthly Magazine.

The compiled list of institutions evaluates each school’s affordability, access and the outcome of the students who attended the institutions. It is the fourth year in a row that Radford has been included on the list.

In the Southeast category of the magazine’s rankings, Radford ranks 54th. There were 18 schools in all from Virginia who made the list, with Radford ranked 10th as one of 12 public schools in Virginia to make the list.

When compiling the list, Washington Monthly considers criteria in three categories: social mobility, research and service. The colleges are also ranked based on how they help students achieve marketable degrees while keeping prices at affordable levels.

A complete list of the institutions that made the “Best Bang for the Buck” list can be found on Washington Monthly’s website.
