From Barnes & NobleEach year more than 2 million students apply to college, and 85 percent of these students attend a college within 200 miles of their home. SparkNotes new Great Colleges series is the first of its kind to offer college guides with essential information on the best colleges in each major region of the United States.
Combined with information on each school's offerings in terms of value, innovation, quality of life, academics, resources, and technology, SparkNotes regional guides don't just offer a list of the most elite schools. Instead, we assign each school one (or more) specific categories: Big Rep, Big Deal, Big Idea, and Big Fish. Using a quiz in the front of the book, students will be able to identify their type, and then find schools that match their wants and needs.
