Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
After years of poring over run-of-the-mill colleges and ho-hum universities, SparkCollege, an imprint of SparkNotes, discovered 95 schools that all students should know about. These schools are called "treasure schools" because that's exactly what they are - hidden treasures. Gems. These schools put learning and community above a national football championship, offer more than cookie-cutter majors, and favor small-group learning over teaching assistants and 300-student lecture halls. A must have book for any student thinking about college.
