The College Handbook.
Watts, Susan, Ed.
Descriptions of 2,863 colleges make up the College Handbook. These are all the undergraduate institutions listed in the 1973-74 edition of Education Directory - Higher Education, published by the United States Office of Education, as well as some colleges that qualified early in the year for listing in the 1974-75 edition of that directory. Most of the descriptions are quite detailed. The descriptions follow a common outline to make it easy to find a particular item of information in any description and to compare one college with another in respect to a particular characteristic. Each statement begins with a few items of general information, followed by sections on curriculum admissions, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, and where to write for more information. The general information at the beginning makes it possible to classify the college quickly according to certain major characteristics--that is, whether it is a two-year or a four-year college, public or private, church-affiliated or not, and for men or women or both. In addition, this section gives the number of undergraduates enrolled in graduate study; information about its academic calendar, including the availability of summer session; and a description of the nature and location of its community. Colleges could, if they chose to, identify themselves as predominantly black, and they could also describe special features or other information not called for in other sections of the statement.
