College guides written by students for students.

Your ultimate source for honest, unbiased information, College Prowler delivers an inside look at the top colleges and universities in the United States. While writing our series of college guides, we felt it was critical that our content was unbiased and unaffiliated with any college or university.

We think it s important that our readers get honest information and a realistic impression of the student opinions on any college campus that s why we intend to publish information about all aspects of a particular college, even the terrible parts you wouldn t find in a campus brochure. While we do keep an eye out for the occasional extremist the cheerleader or the cynic we take pride in letting the college students tell it like it is. We strive to create a college guide that s as representative as possible of each particular campus. Our guides cover both the good and the bad, and whether the survey responses point to recurring trends or varying opinions, these sentiments are directly and proportionally expressed through our guides.

When reading our guides and looking at our college rankings, keep in mind that every college is different and that the students who make up each college are not uniform as a result, it is important to assess colleges on a case-by-case basis. Because it s impossible to summarize an entire college with a single number or description, each guide provides a dialogue, not a decision, that s made up of 20 different topics and hundreds of student quotes. In the end, we hope that this guide will serve as a valuable tool in your college selection process. Enjoy!

About the Author:

I did it! I graduated with a BA in journalism from the best school in the world, Texas Tech. Since I left Lubbock, I have moved to Austin and into a new life as a working girl. Although my mom assures me there is more to come, writing this book has given me a chance to look back on what I believe were the best four years of my life.

I know everyone loves his group of friends, but I am amazed at the love and closeness I feel for so many people from Tech. My girlfriends are the kind of people that just make you feel good. Together we always bring out the best in each other, and most importantly, we know exactly what it takes to have a really good time. We always had an outstanding time when it was just the girls, but all of us are boy-crazy, and Tech was full of great ones. I love all of my guy friends from Tech, not only because they are studs, but because they made parties, road trips, lunch, and even class just a little more fun. When I moved away from Lubbock, I also had to move away from these great people, but I will hold on to all of these friendships as long as they will hold on to me.

I m so happy my mom (the biggest Tech fan who didn t attend Tech) and dad gave me such a great college opportunity. I learned a lot and loved a ton, and I am ready to take on the rest of what this world has to offer.
