Students don't have to choose between improving the world and succeeding in college.Colleges with a Conscienceprovides detailed information geared toward prospective college students searching for facts about life that go beyond raw admissions statistics.

Colleges with a Conscienceis a unique guide to 81 carefully selected service-learning programs. Students can learn how to get involved, find financial support for service, and integrate community work with academic life.

From sorting through mountains of view books to preparing for a campus tour, The Princeton Review informs students about finding a socially responsible college, including a "How To" list of questions, such as:

·What role do students have in university decision making?
·What kinds of volunteer opportunities are available to students?
·What is the relationship between the university and its surrounding community?
·What are the university’s policies on issues such as fair labor, living wage of its employees, and food salvaging?
·How does the institution support student political activism and civic engagement?

With a chapter devoted to profiling students who are leaders on their campuses, book buyers can read about real college students who balance social activism with school and college life.
