There are more than 2,200 four-year colleges in the United States. This year, two South Carolina schools have been included in the resource that millions of parents, counselors and college-bound students have turned to for 30 years — “Fiske Guide to Colleges.”
Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the top independent voice in college admissions, “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2014” (ISBN: 9781402260643; July 2013; $23.99 U.S.; College Guide/Reference; Trade Paper) is a selective, subjective and systematic look at 300-plus top colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, Ireland and Great Britain.
South Carolina schools featured in the Fiske 30th anniversary edition include:
• College of Charleston
“Everyone has their own style and aren’t judged for it” (pg.132).
• University of South Carolina
“Diversity and loyalty are two words to describe Gamecock students” (pg.647).
The Fiske Guide to Colleges is available as an iPad app on iTunes and a Web app on CollegeCountdown.com.
