New College is a national bargain
SARASOTA - New College gets recognized as a bargain by Fiske.
The Sarasota school is among just 20 nationally to receive the recognition for top academics coupled with low tuition by Fiske Guidebook to Colleges. The annual guide, considered to be one of the top guides for prospective college students, describes the Sarasota school as a "public ivy" where students enjoy an intimate learning environment for a bargain price.
In order to make the list, schools must achieve either four or five stars on the guide's quality ranking system and be designated as a moderate or low-price school.
New College has appeared on Fiske's list every year since 2003, largely due to the school's low tuition and reputation for awarding scholarships to both in-state and out-of-state students.
The list also includes University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Vanderbilt University.
