Washington Monthly ranked Grand Valley State University a "Best Bang for the Buck" in the Midwest category for its 2019 College Guide Magazine.

The ranking was based on several factors including tuition rates, loan repayment, graduation rates and number of first-generation students.

Grand Valley was also listed among the "Best National Universities," in which universities offering master's and doctoral degrees were ranked based on their contribution to the public good in three categories: social mobility, research and providing opportunities for public service.

This year, the College Guide also honored institutions that do the most to encourage students to vote.

Grand Valley was ranked one of "America's Best Colleges for Student Voting."
