2015 Fiske Guide Best Buy SchoolFor the tenth straight year, the University of Iowa has been designated a “Best Buy” in the Fiske Guide to Colleges.

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 30 years. The UI is one of only 23 public universities from the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada on the list and one of three Big Ten schools included along with Purdue University and Indiana University.

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 20 private institutions.

Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014 is available in print (ISBN: 9781402260643), as an iPad app on iTunes, and a Web app on fiskeguide.com.
