CUA Named a “Best Buy”

Dean of University Admissions Christine Mica with the Fiske Guide.

The 2009 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges has named Catholic University one of 49 colleges and universities that qualify as “Best Buys” based on the quality of academics available to students relative to the cost of tuition. CUA is the only Catholic college or university to be designated a “Best Buys” institution by the reference work, which was published in summer 2008. It is the first time Catholic University has been named to this category.

The Fiske Guide to Colleges describes the “Best Buys” schools as a select group of institutions that “offer outstanding academics with relatively modest prices.” To determine “Best Buys” institutions, Fiske researchers looked at academic offerings, lifestyle information and cost of tuition to determine those schools that offer remarkable educational opportunities for a bargain price.

Fiske is a guidebook to the top 300 U.S. colleges and universities.
