McDaniel College was named a "best value" by Kiplinger's Personal Finance, and is the only Maryland liberal arts college to make the list.
The rankings are available online at http://www.kiplinger.com/links/college, and will be published in the magazine's December issue.
Two hundred colleges and universities made Kiplinger's list based on an assessment of cost and financial aid, competitiveness, academic support, graduation rates and student indebtedness.
According to Kiplinger's, "All 100 (liberal arts) schools on our list offer the academic quality and affordability that meet our definition of value."
In addition to the Kiplinger's inclusion, McDaniel was recently ranked in the "first tier" of national liberal arts colleges by U.S. News. The college was also recognized nationally among 40 "Colleges That Change Lives."
