There are a lot of factors kids take into care when selecting a college. How many will it cost me? Do graduates go on to make a lot of money? How good regarded is it? Is it in a cold city or a flattering place?

Students looking for a pleasing campus have a lot of choices, and it’s not startling that some of those are in Maine.

The website greatvaluecolleges.net is dedicated to assisting find inexpensive colleges and universities and puts out lists like a recent “35 Great Value Colleges with Beautiful Campuses.”

Colleges and universities were graded on affordability, awards and recognition, inclusion on other important “most pleasing college campuses” list articles, important features (like significant architecture, famous buildings, outside activity centers, farms, botanical gardens, arboretums, chronological relevance, etc.) location and full-time tyro influence rates.

Out of tip 35 colleges, College of a Atlantic in Bar Harbor was ranked 14th best and The University of Maine’s Orono campus was ranked 6th best, even yet both colleges’ net costs of over $16,000 per year docked them points for affordability. In fact, they were among a many costly colleges on a list, that also enclosed Ole Miss, Harvard and The University of Hawaii during Manoa.

I emailed a post’s author, Gabrielle Gibeily, to ask how a net cost was calculated, since it lists Harvard University as reduction costly than UMaine. She pronounced greatvaluecolleges.com uses the National Center for
Education Statistics’ College Navigator Database.

“College Navigator breaks it down as a cost for ‘Full-time beginning undergraduate students who paid a in-state or in-district fee rate and were awarded extend or extend assist from federal, state or local governments, or a institution,” Gibeily said.

So Harvard might be many some-more costly up-front (about $60,000 per year including room and board), though those who get extend and extend assist compensate reduction an a finish than UMaine students removing grants.

College of a Atlantic got points for a plcae in Bar Harbor right on a ocean, as good as a several gardens and a campus-wide Arboretum of Eden.

UMaine’s gardens, trails and “substantial Romanesque, Italianate and Neoclassical buildings,” helped a high ranking. As a UMaine grad, we was astounded to learn that a campus’ landscape was designed by architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed Central Park and a drift of a White House.

This isn’t a initial time Maine colleges have captivated a website’s attention. An Oct list of “40 Most Beautiful College Campuses in Rural Areas” enclosed COA and Colby College.
