Cresson, Pa. — Mount Aloysius College has been selected out of nearly 8,000 postsecondary schools as a recipient of the Best Value School award for 2020/2021. The award is issued by University Research & Review, a company dedicated to improving the process of how a student selects a postsecondary school. There is a rigorous selection process conducted by a committee of former college presidents, university CEOs, provosts, and professors.

Mount Aloysius College president, Dr. John Mills, was pleased that the college was once again recognized in a manner that illustrates the College’s dedication to providing an affordable yet quality education. “It endorses who we are, what we do and most importantly, what our students think of us. It is a genuine affirmation of solid value and reflects very well on the entire campus community.”

URR Founder Joseph Schmoke stated, “It is our distinguished pleasure to present the award to Mount Aloysius College. We hope current students and alumni take pride in this honor, and anyone searching for a quality, reasonably priced college education strongly considers Mount Aloysius.”

The committee of University Research & Review, consisting of higher education professionals, chose Mount Aloysius as a Best Value School from thousands of colleges and institutions. Schools cannot pay to receive the award; it has to be earned through the nomination and committee evaluation process. Mount Aloysius College was chosen by the committee because it passed rigorous standards including a combination of cost, accreditation, variety and quality of school programs, and student satisfaction with the institution.
