    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    According to a new list published by U.S. News, FSU is the most efficient university in the nation. 

    Per U.S. News, the list is "based on operating efficiency, defined as a school's 2011 fiscal year financial resources per student divided by its overall score (the basis U.S. News uses to determine its overall numerical rank) in the 2013 Best Colleges rankings. This calculation reveals how much each school is spending to achieve one point in the overall score and its position in the rankings."

    Florida State tops the list with $17,731 spent per student.

    "It's an amazing compliment to how the university runs itself and what our faculty does to deliver for our students," FSU president Dr. Eric J. Barron told the Tallahassee Democrat. "Can you imagine what we would do with an extra dollar? We would put it to good use."
