University of Minnesota, Morris has been chosen as one of the country’s best and most interesting colleges and universities by Fiske Guide to Colleges.

The University of Minnesota, Morris is featured in the 2010 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges by Edward B. Fiske. The resource book covers 330 of the “best and most interesting colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada.”

“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, University of Minnesota, Morris Director of Admissions. “With more than 2,200 four-year colleges in the U.S. from which to choose, it can become an overwhelming decision. The Fiske Guide to Colleges is a source of information that can help college-bound students and their parents narrow their options. We are proud that the University of Minnesota, Morris is included.”

The Fiske Guide to Colleges assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each institution included in the resource book in terms of academics, social life and overall quality of life. Schools were chosen based on their selectivity. There are about 175 “selective” colleges and universities in the U.S., including the University of Minnesota, Morris, all of which are included in this edition of the Fiske Guide. In addition, schools were chosen to represent geographic areas, public and private institutions, and areas of study enjoying special popularity at present such as the environment.

Describing itself as “fiercely independent” the Fiske Guide to Colleges “accepts no consulting, advertising or other fees from colleges and has no outside relationship of colleges working on its behalf.”
