U.S. News & World Report: Manchester is top value among Indiana regional colleges

Manchester University has again been named the “Best Value” in Indiana among regional colleges by the U.S. News & World Report annual college guide.

Manchester is fourth in the Midwest’s top 10 “Best Value” ranking. This is also the 22nd year the news magazine has recognized the University as a "Best College" in the Midwest. Last month, The Princeton Review college guide also declared Manchester a “Best in the Midwest.”

“We are honored to be a perennial on such rankings,” said President Dave McFadden. “They are a reflection of Manchester’s market-smart and mission-driven strategy that puts students first.” Manchester University passed the 1,500-student mark for the first time in its history this year.

Manchester offers a Triple Guarantee to students – including guaranteed access to financial aid, guaranteed graduation in four years or less and guaranteed job or grad school placement within six months of graduation.
The University’s 10-year average for employment/graduate school placement is higher than 95 percent.

Most Manchester students graduate in four years – an increasing number in three – which accelerates their earning potential and keeps student loan debt in check.

“High school students and their families are invited to see for themselves what makes Manchester so great, at fall Spartan Days in October and November,” said Adam Hohman, assistant vice president for enrollment and marketing. They’ll get a campus tour, lunch, financial aid session and talk with faculty, coaches and admissions experts. Friday visitors can sit in on a class.
