•Insider tips on the best—and worst—departments, courses, and professors
•The statistics that colleges don’t want you to know</p><p>•A unique “traffic light” feature—red, yellow, or green—that reveals the state of intellectual freedom and the extent of political correctness on campus
•The truth about day-to-day student life: the social scene, living arrangements, campus safety, clubs, sports, traditions, and much more
•A roadmap for getting a real education at any school, whether a huge state university or a tiny liberal arts college
