For the tenth year in a row, Knox College has been selected by Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine as one of the leading "Best College Values" for both outstanding academics and affordability.

Knox's national ranking of 76 among the nation's top liberal arts colleges is based on a number of factors that emphasize both quality and affordability. They include the academic strength of the student body, graduation rate, and value as reflected in cost and financial aid.

Kiplinger's also tracks the career and professional success of Knox alumni, as measured by earnings approximately 10 years after a student attended college.

"A record of 10 years in Kiplinger's top 100 shows that Knox College offers what students and families are looking for—outstanding academic quality at a reasonable cost," said Paul Steenis, Knox's dean of admission.
