Posted by Jenna Ray on Wednesday, Jul. 2, 2014
The University of Minnesota, Morris is featured in the 2015 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges. Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the guide book delivers an insider's look at the academic climates and the social and extracurricular scenes at the “best and most interesting” schools in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. This is the fourth consecutive year in which Morris has been included.
Fiske takes into account many qualities when selecting schools for the guide, including academic ratings, price category, and quality of student life on campus. By doing so, he reveals the real personality of schools like Morris through a broad range of subjects like student body, academics, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, food, and co-curricular activities.
“Selecting the right college—one that fits a student’s interests, goals, and personality—is one of the most important decisions a young person will make,” said Bryan Herrmann, director of admissions at Morris. “The Fiske Guide to Colleges can help college-bound students and their parents narrow their options, and we are proud that Morris is included.”
For more than 30 years, the Fiske Guide to Colleges has been an indispensable source of information for college-bound students and their parents. The 2015 edition is available on newsstands Saturday, July 5. Additional information is available at fiskeguide.com.
