Clark University named a 'best buy' in 2015 Fiske Guide to Colleges

FiskeFeature_3_300The Fiske Guide to Colleges, revised and updated for 2015, includes Clark University as a “Best Buy” among the list of the “best and most interesting of the more than 2,200 four-year colleges in the United States.”

Clark is one of just 41 institutions — 21 public and 20 private — to receive the Fiske “Best Buy” rating, which identifies “schools that offer outstanding academics with relatively modest prices.”

The guide — which covers a range of topics, including academic quality, student body, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, food, and extracurricular activities — states about Clark: “The foundation of a Clark education is the Program of Liberal Studies, which promotes the habits, skills, and perspectives essential to lifelong learning. ... About 40 percent of students participate in undergraduate research, and first-year students have access to a variety of programs aimed at helping them transition into college life.”

Also included in Clark’s profile are anonymous quotes from students of various grade levels. “Clark students are, well, Clarkies,” says one senior. “... intelligent, talented in a quiet way,
and probably the best people you will ever meet.”

The Fiske Guide is compiled by Edward B. Fiske, who served for 17 years as education editor of the New York Times.  Now a leading independent voice in college admissions, Fiske has published this popular annual guide to provide a selective, subjective, and systematic look at 300+ colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain.
