The University of Oregon ranked 98th of 100 for in-state and 99th for out-of-state students on a list of best values in public education for 2013.

The schools on the list are considered by the list’s organizers, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, to be the 100 best public universities in the nation for college students to invest their time and money.
