Cottey Selected a Best Value College

Date Posted: May 1, 2020 Author: Steve Reed

Cottey College was again selected as a 2020 Best Value School by the higher education experts at University Research & Review. This is the ninth year for the Best Value School Awards. These exclusive awards are only granted to reasonably priced institutions whose students and alumni are most satisfied with their education and choice of school.

“We celebrate our recognition as a Best Value College,” said Dr. Jann Weitzel, President of Cottey College. “Both U.S. News & World Report and Best Value Colleges recognize that Cottey is an affordable option and a great value. The generous support that Cottey receives from alumnae, friends, and the P.E.O. Sisterhood along with the College’s excellent financial management makes this institution a great value for students.”

University Research & Review recognized 124 traditional colleges and universities that provide students a place where they fit in, offer top-notch academic programs, and costs that are reasonable, and provide financial aid.

While geographically disbursed around America, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Missouri represent the states with the most schools offering students the best value. These four states are home to more than a quarter of all colleges and universities receiving the 2020 Awards. Both public and private colleges and universities are included in this year’s Awardee list. Additional information is online at
