Students on campus tell you what you really want to know

“Savvy parents and students hold this book to be a must-read.”
New York Daily News

“Who better to tell prospective students about life at college than current students?”
Boston Herald

The Insider’s Guide to the Colleges is the only college reference written and researched by students for students. Our writers have interviewed hundreds of undergrads—about academic life, diversity, the dating scene, even the food—to uncover what it’s really like to work and play at the country’s top colleges. Rather than glossy brochure hype, you get the unvarnished truth about campus life told directly by the students who live it.

Now in its thirtieth edition, this unbeatable college reference includes:

- Revealing profiles of more than 300 top schools in the U.S. and Canada
- Completely updated statistics, from average SAT scores to male/female ratios
- A “College Finder” that lets students zero in on the right schools for them
- Unusual “FYI” sections with outrageous advice and insider observations
