ALC recently received national media attention for being one of “The Most Affordable Colleges in America.” An article written by SmartMoney.com journalist, AnnaMaria Andriotis, originally hit the internet on January 7, 2011. SmartMoney, a member of the Wall Street Journal digital network, provides information on current trends in investing, spending, and personal finance, as well as education. This article was then picked up by Yahoo! and was one of the top stories on the Yahoo News page. ALC is pleased to gain this type of national recognition for its commitment to helping Appalachian students receive a quality education at little or no cost.
