Forbes considered the quality of education received, and how much it costs when making its list of 25 colleges that give you the best bang for your buck. The United States Military Academy tops the list, and the U of I came in at number 25.
"We're very excited about it, and hope a lot of people will know more about the University of Idaho now, and some of the things we've known for a long time," said U of I Vice President of University Advancement Chris Murray.
Only a handful of schools in the West made the list, including the University of Wyoming and Brigham Young University. The U of I also ranked number 352 on Forbes' overall list of "Top Colleges" across the country.
