Hiram Tops Ohio Liberal Arts Colleges in ‘Best Bang for the Buck’

Washington MonthlyFor the second year in a row, Hiram College ranks first among Ohio liberal arts colleges in Washington Monthly’s “Best Bang for the Buck” list.

This list, part of the publication’s annual College Guide, ranks colleges based on the economic value students receive per dollar.

“There is no doubt that Hiram College is a great economic value,” said President Lori Varlotta. “But what makes our economic value distinctive is that it is coupled with a magic that permeates the campus and inspires students for life. It’s hard to describe, but talk to almost any of our alumni, and you’ll hear it in their voice and see it in their non-verbals. Hiram transforms lives, and that is priceless.”
