Finding good value for your money is always a challenge, especially when it comes to something as expensive as a college degree.

Making college more affordable is one reason UM received a lofty ranking in MONEY magazine's annual list of the "Best Colleges for Your Money", a value ranking that evaluates colleges on educational quality, affordability and alumni success.

Brooklyn College was the #2 ranked City University of New York (CUNY) institution, coming behind only Bernard M. Baruch College (the top-ranked CUNY school was #2 overall), and beating stiff competition from the likes of Rutgers University, Barnard College, the University of Chicago, Stony Brook University, Cornell University, Duke University, and Wesleyan University. Princeton University topped the list.

Over the past four years, MSU has climbed steadily in Money's ranking, rising from #122 in 2014, to #109 in 2015, to #54 in 2016, and #30 this year.

The ranking focuses on return on investment. "Nowadays, bragging rights are going to colleges in what we'll dub the "Paycheck League" - schools that the real numbers show provide a boost in the job market".

Ubuntu Is In The Windows Store
Today the operating system was made available in the Windows Store , something Microsoft earlier in 2017 said it would do. This year the surprise continued by extending its Linux love to SUSE and Fedora distributions as well.

"Objective data on alumni success debunk the myth that the best schools are exclusive", the article says.

"One of the country's most affordable elite schools, the University of MI accepts less than a third of the almost 50,000 students who apply annually", MONEY's description of UM reads.

MSU's graduation rate of 77 percent is 15 percent higher "than would be expected for students with similar test scores and economic backgrounds", Money says. "But all three cracked our top 50, have unusually high graduation rates and produce young alumni with average earnings of at least $50,000 a year".

According to Money Magazine you can start your search in East Lansing at Michigan State University.

Coming in at #43, the college was noted for its outstanding national academic reputation, rigorous honors college, study overseas program, first-year learning communities, diversity, and selectivity.
