Seattle University is once again among the best four-year colleges and universities in the United States, according to the prestigious Fiske Guide to Colleges
. SU has previously been featured in the publication, including last year. The university's Jesuit and interreligious ethos, coupled with its leadership in sustainability, seems to be striking a chord with prospective students.
Consulted by millions of prospective students and their families, the guide has selected 319 institutions from more than 2,000 four-year colleges.
According to the publication's news release, the guide includes "the best and most interesting colleges and universities with details on academics, campus setting, student body, financial aid, housing, food, social life, and extracurricular activities."
The Fiske Guide
explains its role as this: "So many students approach the college selection process by limiting their sights to local institutions, the pet schools of their parents or guidance counselors, or ones they know by possibly outdated reputations. One of the most important purposes of Fiske Guide to Colleges 2013
… is to broaden students' horizons about American higher education and help them select the right college that coincides with their particular needs, goals, interests, talents and personalities." Read more
