Plattsburgh State is getting a pat on the back from Kiplinger's Personal Finance.
The magazine named SUNY Plattsburgh on its list of top 100 Best Value in Public Education for 2014. This is the third time the school has made the list. Todd Moravec, the director of Student Financial Services at Plattsburgh State, says nowadays when it comes time for students to choose their college, debt is a big part of the decision-making process.
"I think you see students now when choosing a school, I think they're doing a better job of evaluating or at least more concerned about how much debt am I going to graduate with going to school A versus school B? And they're taking that into consideration more and more. What's my return on investment going to be by going to this school?" Moravec said.
SUNY Plattsburgh says it offers a lot of scholarships to students, and that is one of the reasons it made Kiplinger's list. Plattsburgh was ranked 98 for in-state students and 78 for out-of-state students.
The University of Vermont also made the list. It was ranked 75 for both in-state and out-of-state students.
