December 31, 2006

Drake University recently was included in Barron's college guide, "Best Buys in College Education."

Colleges are selected to appear in the book based on various criteria, including tuition rates and survey responses by the dean of students and by students. These 247 colleges chosen represent the best combination of sound data and student satisfaction, according to Barron's.

Now in its ninth edition, the book gives information on Drake's campus setting, student/faculty ratio, freshman profile, faculty profile, tuition and fees and room and board.
