Affordable and highly ranked. Those were the keys to being placed on Business Insider’s recently published list of the most affordable of the top colleges in every state. Bowling Green State University takes the Ohio spot.

“Our faculty members’ teaching skills, research, expertise and involvement in our students’ education are hallmarks of the BGSU experience,” said BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey. “By leveraging their passion, we are able to provide a high-quality education at an affordable cost. We are pleased to once again be recognized for our commitment to affordability and accessibility.”

Business Insider used tuition data from the Chronicle of Higher Education to compile the list, which only included colleges and universities rated in the top 220 by U.S. News and World Report. BGSU beat out the other five state universities on the list: Kent State University, Miami University, Ohio University, Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati. The tuition data are from the 2016-17 academic year and include tuition, fees, and room and board.

Earlier this year, Money Magazine placed BGSU on its list of “Best Colleges for Your Money.”
