Saint Bonaventure University is ranked Number 1 in New York and Number 2 in the North on U.S. News & World Report's 2019 list of best regional university values.
St. Bonaventure also ranked 22nd out of 197 institutions on the magazine's all-criteria ranking of Best Regional Universities in the North.
"We've always done very well on the U.S. News value rankings, but our decision to enhance our academic scholarships last year has taken us to the top," said Dr. Dennis R. DePerro, now in his second year as university president.
"Welcoming the largest freshman class in a decade this fall affirms to me that people are taking notice that a St. Bonaventure education is a tremendous value, both professionally and personally," he said.
The magazine determined the value ranking using three figures from 2017-18: ratio of academic quality to price, percentage of undergraduates receiving need-based aid and average discount.
The magazine's annual rankings of "America's Best Colleges" were released today.
