Overview

You probably have a lot of questions about college right now. Maybe you're not sure what kind of school is best for you, or what kind of financial aid you qualify for.

If you are the first in your family to pursue a college education, you might be especially confused by all the choices out there, and unsure of what to expect from the whole experience. The African American Student's Guide to College helps you not only to get in, but also to stay in, to deal with all the demands and conflicts that await you, and ultimately to enjoy the thrill of graduating.

You can find the "official" word on colleges almost anywhere, but The Princeton Review is famous for bringing you the real story, telling you what you can expect in your classes and from your classmates.

In this guide, we explain:



  • How to choose the right college and find out what a school can offer you

    How to pay for it: financial aid, grants, and scholarships

    How to study smart, take tests, write papers, and prioritize

    How to have fun while avoiding trouble

    How to deal with racism: confronting difference, intolerance, and plain ignorance


  • This all-in-one guide also profiles the top 150 colleges for African Americans (whether historically black or predominantly white). We include the most up-to-date information on academics, tuition, student population, and campus life, plus all the important addresses, phone numbers, and deadlines you need to know to apply.
