283 Great Colleges (SparkCollege)
283 Great Colleges helps students to find the college perfectly suited for them. The book focuses on matching the individual student to the school, and not on rankings and statistics. In addition to having the essential information, there are fun tidbits to keep students excited about going to college. Organized in a system of icons, which provide a quick visual rundown of each school; a quiz in the front of the book helps students figure out which icons fit them best. Each entry begins with a bulleted list with the school’s five key selling points. Witty, magazine-style headings begin each entry. Features short anecdotes about a tradition, a cool program, or the school’s history. Smart, snappy, and fun writing style distinguishes 283 Great Collages from all other guides.
