Western Michigan University is said to be a bargain by the President's standards


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A couple of self-described web based magazines for Washington policy wonks say that Western Michigan University will give students the “best bang for the buck”, when compared to most other universities.

“Washington Monthly” put the university in the top 50 and the blog “PolicyMic” ranked it at #5 of all the schools that already meet the standards laid out by President Obama.

University Spokesperson Cheryl Rolland says what they are looking for is a high quality researched based curriculum with a reasonable tuition rate.

They are singling out schools that according to their reports and numbers, "are acting on behalf of the true public interest" that "promote upward social mobility, research and public service."
