EUGENE, Ore., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 25 Best Colleges in Kentucky for 2017.
With highly ranked public research universities, as well as historic and dynamic private schools, there's really something for everyone in the Bluegrass State. For prospective college students considering going to school there, there's more good news: the state's Council on Postsecondary Education has put hard limits on tuition increases at public colleges.
"Those limits should come as a relief to anyone, but especially people worried about rising tuition and the increasing cost of going to college," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "So for anyone considering going to college in Kentucky, we've put together this list to help them parse out the best colleges and universities in the state."
College Choice developed its list by looking at academic quality along with return on investment—the differential between tuition costs and average early career earnings.
The ranking for the 25 Best Colleges in Kentucky finds Berea College in the top spot. Centre College is in second, and University of Kentucky rounds out the top three.
The entire ranking, listed in alphabetical order, is as follows:
Alice Lloyd College
Eastern Kentucky University
Kentucky Christian University

Morehead State University
Murray State University
Northern Kentucky University
Thomas More College
University of Kentucky
