Saint Louis University has been recognized by the Princeton Review as a 2020 Best Value College in their newly released top 200 list announced Feb. 4.

The Princeton Review chose the 200 schools based on its surveys of administrators at 656 colleges in 2018–19. Survey topics covered academics, cost, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt, and alumni support.

SLU was also ranked No. 4 on this year’s Top 25 Best Schools for Making an Impact list. The ranking is based on student ratings and responses to survey questions covering community service opportunities at their school, student government, sustainability efforts and on-campus student engagement.

The Princeton Review also factored in data from its surveys of students attending the colleges, as well as PayScale.com surveys of alumni of the schools about their starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction.
