WHAT MAKES FISKE’S COLLEGE RATINGS DIFFERENT?
Since 1982, the Fiske Guide to Colleges has been conducting in-depth evaluations and student satisfaction surveys on the top colleges and universities. Completely updated every year, it is the only guide to offer real feedback from students and schools, filtered through the honest assessment of Edward B. Fiske, former education editor of the New York Times and a pioneer in the study of higher education. The independent, advertisement-free annual guide has become a standard part of college admissions literature and is now the country’s bestselling college guide.
