The 2010 Fiske Guide to Colleges named the University of the Pacific as one of the 44 "best buys" for a college education in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
The announcement was made this week by the publishers of the popular college guide, SourceBooks Inc. The company said the 44 institutions were picked "based on the quality of academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance."
Fiske researchers combined the cost data with academic and lifestyle information about each college and university to determine which institutions offer educational opportunities at a relatively modest cost. The Fiske Guide to Colleges that features Pacific will be available for purchase in July.
