Miami named a ‘Best Buy’

Miami is the only Ohio college or university to be listed among the nation’s "Best Buys" by The Fiske Guide for Colleges 2001.

Miami is one of only 19 public and 21 private universities in the United States and Canada cited as a "Best Buy" by Fiske for offering "remarkable educational opportunities at a relatively modest cost."

President James C. Garland said it is gratifying to see the university recognized by a widely respected independent source such as The Fiske Guide."I was particularly pleased to see Miami’s professors described as ‘exceptional’—a categorization that is well deserved."

The university has earned a spot on the college guide’s "Best Buy" list eight out of nine times it has been published.

In a two-and-a-half page section on Miami, the college guide says the university has never strayed from its central commitment to the liberal arts, describing the academic atmosphere as "competitive but not cutthroat."

Miami also was among nine colleges and universities recently cited by the 2001 Kaplan/Newsweek How To Get Into College guide as a "hot college" and was ranked 26th best national public university by U.S. News & World Report.
