Evergreen One of Four Colleges in the Pacific Northwest Included in the Fiske Guide’s 2011 Best Buy Schools

July 12, 2010

Evergreen also Noted by Edward Fiske as one of 10 Top Schools for Environmental Studies

The Fiske Guide to Colleges 2011 features 45 of the Best Buy Schools. These institutions are based on the quality of academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.

This year, Fiske names 45 institutions—21 public and 24 private—as Best Buys. These institutions fall into the inexpensive or moderate price category with four or five star academic ratings, and prove that sometimes the price and quality of a university do not go hand and hand.

The Evergreen State College is a 2011 Fiske Best Buy School.

Other Pacific Northwest Schools included are University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and University of Washington.
