Lincoln, Neb.--The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has been designated a "Best Buy" in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2018.
Nebraska is one of just 20 public colleges and universities to receive the designation, which is earned through academic quality and affordability. Eighteen private institutions were also named to this year's list.
The Fiske Guide, founded in 1982 by Edward Fiske, a former New York Times education editor, is a highly respected, comprehensive guide to more than 300 colleges and universities.
Universities earning "Best Buy" status have high academic rankings, inexpensive or moderate price and high-quality student life. Besides Nebraska, three other Big Ten universities also earned the designation. It is the second time in the past five years that Nebraska has been on the list.
“We are pleased to be recognized for two central aspects of higher education — academics and affordability — and we are dedicated to making sure a degree from Nebraska remains a good value," said Amber Williams, assistant vice chancellor for academic services and enrollment at Nebraska.
