Four local colleges are among the country's best values in private and liberal arts colleges, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

Kiplinger’s annual list ranks 100 private universities and 100 liberal arts colleges. On the private universities' list, the University of Rochester was No. 30, Rochester Institute of Technology was No. 67 and St. John Fisher College was No. 100.

On the liberal arts colleges' list, Hobart and Williams Smith College was No. 99. 

Kiplinger says the schools on the 2014 lists represent those that “provide high-quality academics at a reasonable cost during these continued tough economic times. The colleges exemplify the attributes parents and students look for in higher education, including small class sizes, a good freshman retention rate and a high graduation rate.”
