UNCW Makes Fiske Guide to Colleges 2015

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

The University of North Carolina Wilmington has been included in the 2015 updated edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges, the university announced today. 

For more than 30 years, students, parents and guidance counselors have relied on the Fiske Guide to Colleges to deliver an insider's look at the academic climates and the social and extracurricular scenes of the "best and most interesting" schools not only in the U.S., but also Canada and Great Britain.

Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide is a selective and systematic look at 300+ colleges and universities. It offers a list of schools where ACT and SAT scores are optional, a pre-professional guide that outlines the best schools based on majors or course of study and questionnaires to help students figure out what kind of school best suits them.

In addition to print, The Fiske Guide to Colleges is also available as an iPad app and a Web program on CollegeCountdown.com. Fiske Interactive allows families to go beyond the book by viewing photos of each campus, creating school lists and taking virtual notes.

UNCW has been included in previous editions of the Fiske Guide.
