ALLENDALE — Washington Monthly ranked Grand Valley State University a “Best Bang for the Buck” in the Midwest category for its 2017 College Guide Magazine.
The ranking was based on several factors including tuition rates, loan repayment, graduation rates and number of first-generation students.
Grand Valley was also ranked among the “Best Master’s Universities,” in which universities offering master’s degrees were ranked based on their contribution to the public good in three categories: social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
Grand Valley State University, one of the 100 largest universities in the nation, attracts more than 25,000 students with high-quality programs and state-of-the-art facilities. Grand Valley is a comprehensive university serving students from all 83 Michigan counties and dozens of other states and foreign countries.
