Publishers Weekly
Last year we wrote about a new entrant in the college guide field, the Pittsburgh, Pa.-based College Prowler ("Dollars and Sense," Aug. 4, 2003), which published its first titles in February 2003. Not only is this entrepreneurial publisher still going strong, but its title output is set to double in the next three months, with 100 new titles being added to the original 100 guides (which will be completely revised and tripled in length). Unlike other college guidebooks, each College Prowler title covers one specific college, featuring insider details (top 10 and best/worst lists, "did you know" stats); detailed reference information on school organizations, local hotels, etc.; "inside scoop" sections on local slang, urban legends, academic traditions; and more. The guides-which retail for $14.95 and average 160 pages in length-are all student written (by a student at the particular college), student edited (in the publisher's offices) and then returned to a three-person "bounce-back team" at the college to insure the book's accuracy. And Prowler's formula is clearly working: among the media hits to date are print features in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, Reader's Digest, and many other national newspapers; and TV segments on CNN Live, CBS and NBC. In addition, the company received honorable mention in Fast Company magazine's "Fast 50" international competition. In the words of company CEO Luke Skurman, "Every day I'm more and more excited by the fact that we're helping several thousand students and parents become more confident in the college selection process."

This is with out question the best thing I've read while trying to research colleges. It gave me an in depth look at the scool from Academics all the way through school spirit and traditions. This was a great idea and I endorse College Prowler for anybody looking for college.

This book really helped my college search. It's great to hear what the students say about the school and it sounds really honest. Lots of different areas that the school is rated on so you get a complete look at the student life, including parties, fashion, sports, facilities, etc. Easy to read and very well put together.
