“The University of Connecticut has earned the No. 25 spot on Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s annual list of the 100 best values in public colleges.
The ranking for the 2013-14 academic year is five spots up from the previous year’s designation. It is based on both quality measures, such as test scores for incoming freshmen, as well as college costs including tuition, room and board.
UConn President Susan Herbst called the ranking gratifying given the economic challenges today.”
