Amazing news coming - but no surprise here. UNC-CH has been ranked as THE number one value in Public higher education ...and here is the amazing part...They have consistently ranked them as number one for 13 consecutive years!!

Ranking by how they combine education and affordability, Kipplinger's notes in their February issue, that UNC was the ONLY school on their list to meet 100 percent of a student's financial need. With today's sky high sticker prices and rising student debt, UNC was also designated by the magazine to be "Best in Class" for lowest percentage of students who borrowed and also top of the list for "out-of state value".

Measures of standard used by the magazine included admission rate,the percentage of students returning their Sophomore year, student-faculty ratio, and the four-year graduation rate. Coming in second, third and fourth were UVA, Florida, and The College of William and Mary.

The quality of life just cannot be beat; and it's one more reason I like calling North Carolina "HOME"!
