College Value Rankings


If you’re thinking about going to college, it can be hard to find a place that’s right for you- the right size, the right culture…. and the right price. Would it be easier if the government made a list that rated colleges by value? That’s something President Obama has proposed.

We'll talk with administrators from local colleges and universities Monday, November 25th at Noon and 7pm about what criteria they think should be used to determine the value of the college experience. We'll talk to Greg Buckles, Dean of Admissions at Middlebury College, Susan Wertheimer, Vermont Admissions Coordinator at the University of Vermont, and Paul Sunde, Director of Admissions at Dartmouth College.

What criteria do you think should be used to rate the value of colleges and universities? Leave your comments below or send your questions to vermontedition@vpr.net.
