(Newser) – Tuition, room, and board at a four-year college will cost you, on average, $21,000 to $48,000 per year in the US—so you definitely want to make sure you're getting a good value for your money. On that note, WalletHub is out with its annual ranking of the best colleges and universities in the country. It analyzed more than 1,000 public and private institutions of higher education across the country on 33 measures including cost, student loan debt, class size, student-faculty ratio, on-campus crime, diversity, housing, graduation rate, and a number of metrics related to employment, earnings, and debt post-graduation. The site used the information to determine, as it says, "the top-performing schools at the lowest possible costs to undergraduates." Read on for the top 10 for 2020:
