PHOENIX — Arizona State University and University of Arizona were ranked among some of the best colleges in the nation for career preparation and affordability, according to The Princeton Review.

The universities were ranked among the top 200 colleges nationwide for being affordable and preparing students for their post-graduation careers.

In addition, Arizona State University and University of Arizona also ranked among the Review’s Best 380 Colleges, Best Western Colleges and the most environmentally-friendly colleges.

University of Arizona also took home top spots in the colleges with the Best Health Services programs, most students who pack the stadiums and ranked among the top 25 schools in the nation for undergraduate Entrepreneurship programs.

The Princeton Review released its findings ahead of the 2016 edition of its book, “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.”

Colleges were ranked using factors such as academics, cost and financial aid, graduation rates, student debt, alumni salaries and job satisfaction.

The data was taken from 2015 alumni surveys from PayScale.com.

We want to hear from you.
