The honor resulted from Rice’s No. 13 national ranking in Money’s “2018 Best Colleges for Your Money,” which was the highest of any Texas school in the guide.

The rankings are based on quality of education, affordability and alumni outcomes.

“Rice University is one of the most elite private colleges in the Southwest, with a graduation rate of 93 percent,” according to Money. “The classes are small, and undergraduates have opportunities to work with some of the world’s top researchers.”
