BUFFALO, N.Y. — Students who want to enroll in an outstanding public university that won’t saddle them with crushing debt would be wise to consider the University at Buffalo, according to U.S. News and World Report.

The magazine’s annual “Best Colleges” guide released today ranks UB among the top 25 prominent national universities with students who graduate with the “lightest debt load.” UB students who took out loans to cover four years of undergraduate tuition and expenses graduated with an average of just $15,911 in debt, according to U.S. News.

In comparison, students who graduated from universities with high debt loads graduated owing from $33,000 to $49,000, the magazine states. The data were compiled from students who graduated in 2009.

U.S. News also ranks UB as one of the top national public universities, at No. 58 out of 164 public universities nationwide. UB’s combination of academic excellence and affordability — as indicated by the U.S. News rankings — has helped the university maintain a reputation as one of the nation’s best public universities in a difficult economic climate.

“We take considerable pride in offering undergraduate students the opportunity to learn at a nationally prominent research university that is one of the most affordable in the United States,” said UB Provost Satish K. Tripathi.
