Clarkson University Included in Fiske Guide to Colleges

Clarkson University is included in the revised and updated 2010 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges by Edward B. Fiske, featuring over 330 of the country’s best and most interesting colleges and universities.

For more than 20 years, this leading guide has been a source of information for college-bound students and their parents. The Fiske Guide is selective, covering just the best and most interesting institutions in the United States and Canada.

"While we’re pleased to be included in the Fiske Guide, books like this are just the beginning of a student’s search for the right college," said Clarkson Dean of Admission Brian T. Grant. "We strongly encourage anyone interested in Clarkson to visit our campus, so they can interact with our faculty, staff and students. We also have great information available on the Web to aid students in the selection process."

Edward Fiske served for 17 years as education editor of the New York Times.

The Fiske Guide accepts no consulting, advertising or other fees from colleges and has no outside relationship of colleges working on its behalf.
