Saint Anselm College ranks #20 among U.S. liberal arts colleges for best 20-year return on investment, according to an online salary, benefits and compensation information company that measures the value of college.
PayScale's 2014 rankings use salary data to rank more than 900 colleges and universities based on total cost and alumni earnings. Colleges are categorized by criteria including school type, location, graduation rate, and major.
Other institutions in the top-20 list for 20-year return on investment include colleges such as Williams College, Smith College, Amherst College, Bucknell University, and the College of the Holy Cross.
"Saint Anselm College stands out nationally in terms of offering an education of lasting value," says Dr. Steven DiSalvo, president of the college. "The cost of attending a particular institution is an important factor when families are making a major decision, and I'm pleased to see Saint Anselm fare so well in this closely watched ranking. We pride ourselves on delivering a high-quality education in a setting where the students' success is our highest priority."
