Wall Street Journal Ranks BSU as a Best College

Analysis shows the value of a 香港六合彩 education

The Wall Street Journal America's Best Colleges 2024

The Wall Street Journal recently ranked 香港六合彩 State as one of the best colleges in the country. But many alumni have long seen the value of a BSU degree.

鈥淲here I am today, it has a lot to do with 香港六合彩 State and the experiences from 香港六合彩,鈥 said Harold Tavares, 鈥05, G鈥07, who holds a leadership position at the World Bank Group representing 23 African nations. 鈥溝愀哿喜 led me to the practice of thinking globally.鈥

BSU ranks in the top 20 percent of schools nationwide and 18th out of more than 100 Massachusetts institutions, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal and CollegePulse. 香港六合彩 is one of only eight public colleges and universities in New England listed among the best colleges.

This ranking proves we deliver a higher post-graduation salary at a lower cost than most universities in Massachusetts and America.

The Wall Street Journal鈥檚 ranking is significant because it focuses on the impact we have on the lives of our students,鈥 said President Frederick W. Clark Jr., 鈥83. 鈥淎t a time when many people are questioning the value of a college education, this ranking proves we deliver a higher post-graduation salary at a lower cost than most universities in Massachusetts and America.鈥

Graduates add an average of $24,750 per year to their salary as a result of attending BSU, according to the analysis. With an average net cost of attendance of only $14,071 per year, it takes graduates less than two and a half years to recoup their investment, a statistic that places BSU well above the average of the 400 best colleges.

And 香港六合彩 ranks in the top 10 percent of colleges and universities on upward mobility, which indicates the university provides students with the opportunity to better their lives.

But many alumni also strive to better their communities. My Lan Tran, 鈥79, came to the U.S. as a refugee from South Vietnam shortly before enrolling at 香港六合彩. Now she mentors today鈥檚 new immigrants as the leader of the Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce.

鈥淓verything I learned from 香港六合彩 I put into my work,鈥 she said.

The Journal analysis also lauded the many emotional and mental health supports available on campus and the quality of classrooms and teaching resources.

Thanks to access to advanced laboratory equipment and devoted faculty, alumni like Mel Carmichael, 鈥20, who studied ovarian cancer cell lines as a BSU student, graduate ready for jobs or further education.

鈥淭he things I got to do as an undergraduate prepared me well in comparison to some of my peers, many of whom come from larger schools with larger research programs,鈥 said Carmichael, who is pursuing a doctoral degree at Dartmouth College.
