Fiske Guide to Colleges

Babson College is listed in the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2017. For more than thirty years, millions of students, parents, and guidance counselors have relied on the Fiske Guide to Colleges to present the best and most interesting schools during their college search.

Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, the top independent voice in college admissions, Fiske Guide to Colleges is a selective, subjective, and systematic look at three-hundred-plus colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, and the UK.

Readers will discover the personality of Babson based on a broad range of subjects, including student body, academics, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, food, and extracurricular activities.

Other features of the Fiske Guide to Colleges include:

  • Overlap school suggestions based on which colleges share the most common applications
  • A list of schools where ACT and SAT scores are optional
  • A pre-professional guide that outlines the best schools based on majors or course of study
  • A Sizing-Yourself-Up questionnaire that will help students figure out what kind of school is best for them

The guide is also available as an iPad app on iTunes and a web program.

Edward B. Fiske served for seventeen years as education editor of the New York Times, where he realized that college-bound students and their families needed better information on which to base their educational choices. He is also the coauthor of the Fiske Guide to Getting into the Right College and Fiske Real College Essays That Work.
