Redlands in Fiske Guide to Colleges
University of Redlands included in the 2013 Fiske Guide to Colleges
Redlands, Calif. – Aug. 13, 2012 – The University of Redlands is included in the updated “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2013,” compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske. The Fiske Guide, designed to give a selective, subjective and systematic look at 300-plus colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain, seeks to give readers the real personality of the institutions based on a range of subjects including student body, academics, social life and financial aid.
One of the most important purposes of Fiske Guide to Colleges 2013 is to broaden students’ horizons about American higher education and help them select the right college that coincides with their particular needs, goals, interests, talents, and personalities.
“With its innovative living/learning college and strong pre professional emphasis, this versatile school is one of higher education’s better-kept secrets, and a place where students receive all the personal attention they could want. One student describes it as a ‘small liberal arts college in sunny Southern California with great financial aid packages,” says the Fiske Guide in its profile of the University of Redlands.
Karen Bergh, director of public relations for the University of Redlands, says: “The University’s designation as a top college in these guides, which include students’ voices and opinions, gives further acknowledgement of the value and quality of a University of Redlands education. They can be a valuable resource when parents and students are looking for colleges that are a good fit.”
Edward B. Fiske served for 17 years as education editor of the New York Times, during which time he realized that college-bound students and their families needed better information on which to base their educational choices. He wrote the bestselling annual, the Fiske Guide to Colleges, to help them.
