Occidental College has once again been ranked as one of the nation’s top liberal arts colleges. But this honor has nothing to do with the quality of the education at the Eagle Rock college. Instead, it’s based on the salaries of Oxy graduates. Occidental reports that it came in at No. 7 in SmartMoney’s “payback” rankings, which measures the return on investment, in this case college tuition, that students earn.
Who said a liberal arts education doesn’t pay?
