The Princeton Review has released their 2017 edition of the book Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck. This book lists the top 200 schools around the country that have the best return on investment ratings. Making it into this elite list of the nation’s best colleges…….Clemson University!

To find the top 200 schools, the Princeton Review weights the ROI ratings on a 40 point scale. They examine academics, the ratio of cost/financial aid to graduation rate, alumni salaries, student debt, and alumni job satisfaction. It also examines career development opportunities, such as availability of internships.

Clemson University was recognized as one of the top schools for students due to its affordable price, excellent education, and career preparation. Along with its beautiful campus and strong ties to the local community, this incredible school offers its students' world class academics along with a thriving social life through the athletic and extracurricular programming.



Clemson University sets its students up for success after graduation. In fact, graduates with a bachelor’s degree have a median starting salary of $53,000 and median mid-career salary of $90,800, as found by data collected for the book.

Within the book, Clemson University also received recognition in two special categories. It was named the 6th Best Alumni Network and the 10th Best for Internship Opportunities!

Congrats to Clemson University on this remarkable recognition!
