The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University have been named a "Best Buy School" by the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2012.
Fiske named 49 institutions - 25 private and 24 public - as Best Buys this year. (The editors of the guide count CSB and SJU as one entry.) There are no other Minnesota colleges or universities on the 2012 list.
This is the fourth time CSB and SJU have been recognized as a Best Buy from Fiske. CSB and SJU were named a Best Buy by Fiske in its 2002, 2003 and 2011 editions.
The ranking is based on quality of the academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.
