The 2008 editions of "America's Best Colleges" by U.S. News and World Report magazine and the Princeton Review's annual "The Best 366 Colleges" guide have again recognized the university as one of the best values in higher education.
Wed, Sep 19, 2007
This year's U.S. News and World Report magazine survey of undergraduate programs at colleges and universities again ranks the university among the nation's top national and public universities.
U.S. News ranks the university 40th in its "Great Schools, Great Prices" category. This ranking couples "a school's academic quality, as indicated by its U.S. News ranking, to the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of financial aid."
The Princeton Review, a New York-based company known for its test preparation courses, education services and books, said the university "poses near-limitless options for undergrads willing to seek them out." The university was also noted as one of America's Best Value Colleges in a list of 165 colleges designated as best overall bargains based on cost and financial aid.

UT guest economists are being nationally recognized for something other than their scholarly achievement. A small but elite group of nationally known economists have gained admittance to the "Big Daddy" Hall of Fame. Admittance to the Hall of Fame requires the complete consumption of a full rack of barbequed beef ribs known as the "Big Daddy from the County Line Resturant.
Unless you have been to Texas, odds are that you have not seen a whole rack of beef ribs, as most of the U.S. thinks barbeque is made out of pork. Beef ribs are large: very large. Finishing the Big Daddy requires courage, stamina, and a lot of napkins. Finishing the side dishes that accompany the Big Daddy is not required, but is considered good form.
