EUGENE, Ore., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 25 Best Colleges in Tennessee for 2017.
The state of Tennessee has a number of top-flight colleges that would have no problem making it onto a list of the best schools—not only in the state, but in the country. Whether they're private universities or part of one of the two public college systems in Tennessee, prospective college students have a lot of options to choose from.
"From Memphis' Beale Street to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it's not hard to see why the state of Tennessee is one of the Top 10 tourist destinations in the US," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "These attractions, in addition to the very high caliber of colleges statewide, provide ample reason for going to college in Tennessee."
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.
