Main Page Content
For the eighth straight year, the University of Iowa has been designated a “Best Buy” in the Fiske Guide to Colleges.
The University of Iowa has been designated a "Best Buy" by the Fiske Guide to Colleges eight years in a row.
The UI is one of only 20 public universities from the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada on the list and one of three Big Ten schools included along with Indiana University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The creation of a former New York Times education editor, the Fiske Guide has been a respected college search tool used by parents, college-bound students, and their guidance counselors for more than 25 years.
To receive a "Best Buy" designation, schools had to have high academic rankings, an inexpensive or moderate price, and a high quality of student life on campus. In all, 41 schools received the "Best Buy" designation, including 21 private institutions.
