Rice University in Houston has been named one of the 20 “best buy” private schools in the nation, according to the 2014 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges.
The guide, often heavily thumbed by high school seniors and their parents, breaks down the academic, social and extracurricular profiles of more than 300 of the nation’s universities, the Houston Business Journal reported July 3. Fiske’s 20 “best buy” private colleges were determined based on academic rating, price and quality of student life on campus. The guide also named 21 “best buy” public schools.
