Elon a "Top Financial Find of 2010"
Elon is one of the nation's top seven best values for students who want to attend a university with outstanding academics at an affordable cost, says a former managing editor of the Fiske Guide to Colleges in an article on Reader's Digest.com.
Elon's welcoming environment, supportive faculty, hands-on learning opportunities and emphasis on global perspectives are cited as criteria that make the university "the best bang for your tuition buck."
"Comparison shopping is the name of the game in today's college market. College costs continue to rise, but more aid than ever before is available to help soften the blow,” says Bruce G. Hammond who is also the co-author of four additional volumes in the Fiske series.
Hammond's top college recommendations appeared in "Here's the Deal," a Reader's Digest blog authored by Janice Lieberman, who is a journalist and author with experience reporting for CNBC, NBC, and ABC.
