UW-Stevens Point recognized as a great value among Midwest schools
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point offers its students a quality education at a great value, according to Washington Monthly magazine.
The magazine’s 2015 “Best Bang for the Buck” college rankings place UW-Stevens Point 20th out of more than 400 schools in the Midwest. The scores are based on graduation rate, loan default rate, net tuition price and number of Pell Grant recipients.
UW-Stevens Point was fourth out of the 34 ranked public and private colleges and universities in the state.
“Students find value in their experiences and in themselves at UW-Stevens Point,” said Chancellor Bernie Patterson. “While we have one of the most affordable price tags in the UW System, we are also proud of our close-knit community and opportunities in undergraduate research and service-learning.”
Established in 1894, UW-Stevens Point is located on a 400-acre campus in Central Wisconsin. More than 200 student organizations, a 275-acre nature reserve and world-class arts opportunities attract approximately 9,000 students to enroll at the university each year. UW-Stevens Point has been recognized by the Princeton Review, Tree Campus USA and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its sustainable practices.
