Gettysburg one of best values among liberal arts colleges, magazine says

Gettysburg College is one of the "best values" among American private liberal arts colleges, according to Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine.

Gettysburg is among institutions that "provide a top-quality education at an affordable price--usually with generous financial aid," the magazine reported in its February issue.

 "Our rankings measure academic quality and affordability, with quality accounting for two-thirds of the total," the Kiplinger.com website says.

Gettysburg College is on Kiplinger's top-50 list of private liberal arts colleges in the United States.

"We started with data on more than 600 private institutions provided by Peterson's, then added our own reporting," Kiplinger's reported. Peterson's is a college-search website.

The Kiplinger Letter, launched in 1923, remains the longest continually published newsletter in the United States. In 1947, Kiplinger's created the nation's first personal finance magazine.

Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences. With a student body of approximately 2,500, it is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The college was founded in 1832.
