Back in March, we posted about the ten best U.S. colleges for value according to SmartAsset — and one Colorado college made the cut.

Now, SmartAsset is getting even more Colorado-centric.

The site has revealed its picks for the ten best Colorado colleges for value, and while the top choice is no shock (yes, it's the one that wound up in the U.S. top ten), the other rankings contain their fair share of surprises.

Note that four entries among Forbes's twelve highest-ranked Colorado colleges circa 2015 don't appear here — and the mag gave no love to a number of the institutions on view below.
