Kiplinger’s Personal Finance names EC to list of "300 Best College Values" for 2018

December 22, 2017

Kiplinger LogoContinued validation of Earlham’s extraordinary academics and strong graduate outcomes at an affordable price comes from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s "300 Best College Values" for 2018, published today.

Starting with 1,200 colleges and universities, Kiplinger identified 300 institutions “worth a look” by students and their parents considering higher education. The list was determined by an analysis of class size, admission rates, on-time graduation rates, sticker price and financial aid.

Kiplinger’s rankings of the nation’s best institutions underscore our unwavering commitment to devoting financial aid resources to make a liberal arts education available to students of all socio-economic levels,” Acting Academic Dean Nelson Bingham says. “Our focus on building a strong, intellectually curious community, one where people with disparate interests and experiences can come together in transformative ways, is at the heart of everything we do.”

Earlham’s distinctive approach to the liberal arts makes purposeful connections between classroom learning and experiential opportunities that position students to navigate careers from a multidisciplinary approach. The addition of The EPIC Advantage — the offer of a funded internship, community project or research experience for all students — is an opportunity that is virtually unparalleled in American higher education.

Earlham has produced Nobel laureates, Rhodes Scholars, and winners of the Pulitzer Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship and a Golden Globe Award. Earlier this month, Sara Gelser ’94 was recognized as one of Time’s people of the year for her work in denouncing sexual assault in the Oregon legislature.
