MURRAY, KY (KFVS) -

Murray State University has again been recognized as giving students more bang for their buck.

For the third consecutive year, Washington Monthly’s 2016 College Rankings has highlighted Murray State as a best value for students who want to obtain a college degree.

Murray State was the top-ranked public university in Kentucky within the Southern Schools category of “Best Bang for the Buck,” ranking 24th overall among 100 universities.

The methodology for the “Best Bang for the Buck” rankings included specific measures such as loan repayment rank, graduation rate, net price of attendance, percentage of first-generation students and percent of Pell Grant students.

“Once again this year, we are honored to receive recognition from Washington Monthly that emphasizes the great value of a Murray State University education while reinforcing our mission to be the finest student-centered institution in the country,” said Murray State President Bob Davies. “Examples such as our new scholarship model will continue to provide a high-quality education that affords endless opportunities for our students.”

Earlier this summer, Murray State University received accolades as one of “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes along with being named as a “2016 Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
