The World of Colleges

My students and I take the time to learn about them as learners and as young adults.  Together we explore colleges and universities, trying to grasp the different experiences and flavors, opportunities and structures that each college might offer. Armed with these ideas we carefully construct a healthy list of colleges to which the student will apply.  Our list will have complexity and will represent a wide range of selectivity amongst the colleges. It is essential that each school on the list be a great fit for the student academically, socially and financially.

Here is a list of the colleges and universities to which my students have been admitted. Please see the list of colleges that I have visited and enjoy my linked impressions of the schools. I often use descriptions (and sometimes direct quotations) from school websites, from Unigo, from College Prowler, and from College Guide to augment my impressions.
