Ole Miss moves up on list of best college buys
Just days after announcing a near-record year in private giving, the University of Mississippi has picked up several national accolades reflecting the impact of those donations and the success of faculty and staff in continuous improvements.
Ole Miss moved up two spots to No. 18 in Forbes’ rankings of the nation’s “Best Value Colleges,” part of the annual America’s Top Colleges section. After being ranked No. 24 in 2010, the university moved up to No. 20 last year. This year, UM – sandwiched between the University of Utah and California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo – is the lone SEC school in the Top 20.
