TCNJ featured in 2012 Fiske Guide to Colleges

EWING, NJ… The College of New Jersey has more than a few things in common with the Fiske Guide to Colleges: it is always updating and expanding, and it is top-rated year after year.

The College has once again earned a spot among the nation’s 310 best and most interesting schools in the 2012 Fiske Guide to Colleges, an annual guidebook that USA Today calls “the best college guide you can buy.” Instead of sticking to statistics, the Fiske Guide rates colleges on the strength of their academics and social life. TCNJ, it has consistently found, excels in both arenas.

“TCNJ offers professors focused on teaching and a campus physically similar to one found down the road at Princeton University — without the Ivy League price,” the Guide has written about the College.

Students, parents and high school counselors trust and recommend the Fiske Guide to Colleges because it is fiercely independent. The Fiske Guide accepts no consulting, advertising or other fees from colleges and has no outside relationship with featured institutions.

The Fiske Guide has been helping students and their families choose the right college, among the more than 2,200 four-year college options in the United States, for 28 years. The most recent edition arrives at bookstores this month.

About the Author:
Edward B. Fiske served for 17 years as education editor of The New York Times, during which time he realized that college-bound students and their families needed better information on which to base their educational choices. He wrote Fiske Guide to Colleges to help them.
