For fifteen yearsThe Fiske Guide to Collegeshas been the one indispensable source of information for hundreds of thousands of students and parents. Candid, lively, and frank, it speaks with unique authority, covering everything from where the history department ranks academically to where the basketball team ranks in the Big 10, from which dining halls should be avoided to which professors shouldn't be missed. The result is--asUSA Todaywrote--the qmost readable and informativeq of all the college guides published. Based on surveys of thousands of students and administrators and revised and updated each year, The Fiske Guide to Collegesanswers the questions on the minds of every prospective student and parent. What kind of students go to a particular school? What are the best courses and programs, and how easy is it to get into them? What's it like to live in the dorms? How's the food? The social life? What sports and extracurricular activities are offered? It's all here--along with statistics on admissions, standards, enrollment procedures, costs, and financial aid opportunities. This year's edition also contains a big bonus: the editors' selection of the forty-two schools that constitute 1997's qBest Buys, q the colleges and universities where you can get the best possible education at the most reasonable cost. Some college guides offer only pages of statistics, others only student opinions, and still others only the views of education experts. OnlyThe Fiske Guide to Collegescombines all three, so you get the full picture. It's the one authoritative book that prospective students and their parents shouldn't be without. And coming soon, The Fiske Guidewill be available in a Book/CD-ROM package making choosing a college even easier. Featuring advanced sorting programs which allow users to get a list of schools that meet their particular criteria, The Interactive Fiske Guide to Collegesalso includes videos of hundreds of campuses.In the past, a large part of the Berkeley experience included being involved in political movements; now, being active means trying frantically to graduate in four years in order to dodge as many budget cuts and fee hikes as possible. ... styles ranges from the stunning classical amphitheater to the modern University Art Museum draped in neon sculpture, all of which ...
