Clarkson University is included in the revised and updated 2011 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges by Edward B. Fiske, featuring over 300 of the country’s best and most interesting colleges and universities.

For more than 25 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 Article Photobest and most interesting institutions in the United States and Canada.

"We’re pleased that we have again been selected for inclusion in the Fiske Guide, but the best way to find out about Clarkson University is to visit us right here on campus," says Clarkson Dean of Admission Brian T. Grant. "We can make arrangements for you to meet faculty in majors you may be interested in and specially selected students provide tours of our campus. Our website is also another great source of information."

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.
