If your child anticipating attending college in the next few years, we have a number of items that may be of interest. First off, there are the standard guides, such as Peterson's Four Year Colleges. We keep the latest edition in reference, so look for R 378.7 PET 2013. Older editions of guides are kept on the regular nonfiction shelves.
On our website is a section called "College-Bound," which contains links to a multitude of sources--everything from scholarship information to where you can buy textbooks.
The other day I read an article titled "Top 10 Colleges with the Happiest Students." It has a slideshow of the ten colleges, and looking at the beautiful settings pictured makes me want to go back to school! The article originally came from a website that offers 100,000+ free college reviews, Unigo.com. Of course, Unigo also wants to sell you their Absolute Admit™ college course, but, you can just use the site for its free information.
Good luck with the college hunting and I hope your kids find a school that gives them a great education, and one that can also them happy.
