Students at Emory University, Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia are getting their money’s worth, according to new college rankings.

Personal finance magazine Kiplinger has issued its annual lists of “Best College Values.” Emory ranks 30th out of 300 schools for overall value. Georgia Tech is listed as the 9th best public college; UGA rates 10th. That’s out of 100 schools.

Local research is confirming something we've all heard: getting a job is often about who you know.

Like many people, Atlanta resident Brenna Lakeson has seen the benefits of personal connections in her career.

Recently, when a friend was leaving her job at a center serving the homeless in Atlanta, she put in a good word for Lakeson. The two had gone to grad school together.

Lakeson ended up getting the spot, and, she said, it's worked out well.

The University of Georgia will soon receive $30 million from the Woodruff Foundation.
