PERU – Best Affordable Colleges has named Peru State College third best in the nation on a list of “Best Affordable Small Colleges.”
BestAffordableColleges.org writes, “Sometimes called the “Campus of a Thousand Oaks,” Peru State College combines the charm of a small town with award-winning programs to make it one of the best colleges in the state.”
“But even if the countryside isn’t for you, the price of this school might be,” BestAffordableColleges.org adds, “All students pay the in-state tuition rate, making it affordable for anyone. This school also boasts a wide variety of unique degrees, including degrees in nuclear technology, wildlife ecology, music marketing and community music and private studio.”
An introduction to the Best Affordable Small Colleges List describes its purpose, “For some prospective college students, nothing sounds more perfect than a school where each class is an intimate setting for learning and the professors know your name. Generally at a small school, classes have fewer than 20 students and professors are more available for personal tutoring and mentorship. It is easier to make lasting connections with both the faculty and your peers.”
“In order to help students get the education that’s right for them, we’ve compiled a list of 15 of the most affordable small schools in America. Our list includes only top four-year universities, which excludes graduate schools, community colleges, and specialty schools. Our chosen schools have 4,000 students or fewer in order to ensure a tight-knit community and small classes.”
Peru State College was the only college listed from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri or Nebraska.
