Washington Monthly Names Lebanon Valley College a “Best Bang for the Buck”
09.16.14 |
In a recently released ranking based on the economic value students receive per dollar, Washington Monthly named Lebanon Valley College a “Best Bang for the Buck” college. Only 62 of the 346 baccalaureate colleges considered made the 2014 list.

The “Best Bang for the Buck” list considers Pell grant distribution, graduation rate, student loan default rate, net price, percent of applicants admitted, and ACT/SAT scores. Lebanon Valley’s graduation rate was among the top on the list at 72 percent, and its student loan default rate was among the lowest at one percent.

In its rankings according to a college’s “contribution to the public good,” Washington Monthly ranked Lebanon Valley College 66th among the 346 colleges and universities in the baccalaureate colleges category. Receiving an overall score of 41 for its “contribution to the public good,” LVC also ranked 10th for the number of bachelor's degree students that eventually obtain a doctorate.

Washington Monthly says its goal is to determine “what colleges are doing for the country,” and if consumers are getting the most for their money. The social mobility category considers a college's ability to recruit and retain low-income students; research considers the ability to produce cutting-edge scholarship and Ph.D.s; and service considers the ability to encourage students to give something back to their country.
