America’s Best Kept College Secrets is an affectionate profile of more than one hundred and thirty colleges and universities across the country that share four important characteristics:

1. Each one is a superior institution- exciting, challenging and welcoming.

2. Each one has an excellent reputation and is highly regarded by those who know colleges.

3. Each one accepts more than 50% of applicants and retains more than 80% of enrolled students.

4. Each one is a college or university of quality interested in applicants from outside its region.

This lively and informal guide offers an uncommonly candid appraisal of the college’s culture – what it feels like to live and work on each campus. Profiles include large universities, small colleges, comprehensive universities, liberal arts colleges, schools of art and theater, and institutes of technology. The updated edition features more than thirty new profiles of exceptional colleges and universities.
