Oklahoma State University is one of the top 75 public colleges selected by The Princeton Review in its new book "The Best Value Colleges: 2013 Edition," which was released today.

The book profiles 75 public and 75 private colleges and universities that were chosen for the publication based on data from 650 institutions on their academics, cost and financial aid.

“We are delighted OSU is once again recognized as one of the leading schools in the country for our academic offerings and terrific value,” said OSU President Burns Hargis. “Those are just two of the many reasons that Oklahoma State offers a great educational experience.”

In its profile of OSU, the book's editors praised the school for its in-state tuition and noted that “For both in-state and out-of-state students, OSU provides some of the most affordable tuition in the Big 12… boasts higher retention rates and lower student-to-faculty ratios than many of its conference peers while taking pride in its commitment to providing financial aid.”

Students surveyed by the Princeton Review described OSU’s high quality of life, exalting the “beautiful” campus, “friendly people,” accessibility of professors, and availability of scholarship funds.The large undergraduate population provides a widerange of social and academic options for students. Undergrads may choose from more than 200 majors, 400 student organizations, or play on the more than 50 intramural sports teams that benefit from the impressive 240,000-square-foot Colvin Recreation Center, one of the top six collegiate athletic facilities in the nation.

The Princeton Review, headquartered in Framingham, Mass. with editorial offices in New York City and test preparation locations across the country and abroad, is not affiliated with Princeton University and it is not a magazine.
