And if Louisiana is beckoning, there are plenty of solid school choices that will both provide a good education and set you up well for employment post-graduation. However, pay attention to graduation rates at each school. Not every school is successful in getting students through with a degree in hand. The best value colleges for graduates in Louisiana are public schools.

Tulane University typically has the best graduation rate of any Louisiana school on our list. Tulane is located in the heart of New Orleans and is one of the most famous schools in the South, home to well-known alumni including Newt Gingrich, David Filo (co-founder of Yahoo!), Lauren Hutton and actor/director Paul Michael Glaser (the original Starsky of "Starsky & Hutch.")
