An Insider's Guide to Selecting a College or University.
Dennis, Marguerite J.
This brochure is designed to help college applicants and their families to obtain the information they need to select a college. The brochure opens by listing five basic points to set the stage for gathering information and making a decision. There follows discussion of 10 criteria to consider along with an "insider tip" for each criterion and suggested questions to ask, things to examine, and points to consider. The criteria are: size; location; faculty; academic program; financial aid program; dormitory; social, cultural, recreational, and athletic environment; safety; retention program; and alumni. The next section discusses the campus visit and suggests places to include on that visit, individuals to speak with while on the visit, and 10 questions to be sure to ask. The brochure offers five final thoughts on selecting a college. (JB)
