Now in its 27th year, The Insider's Guide to the Colleges is an intelligent, sometimes irreverent compilation of student-written articles about every aspect of college life, from cafeteria food to academics to the campus social scene. While other guide books offer dry descriptions of college life, The lnsider's Guide to the Colleges gives prospective college applicants the un-hyped, all-encompassing portrait of life on campus from the student's perspective. It features: -- Full coverage of more than 300 schools in all 50 states and Canada, with emphasis on academic programs, faculty, housing and food, extracurriculars, dating and more -- Up-to-date statistics on everything from tuition to male/female ratio -- A helpful "College Finder" which lets students zero in on the right schools for them -- Advice on choosing a college, getting in, and paying for it. -- A lively "FYI" section at the end of each entry that captures the essence of each school and the students who go there.

Release Date: 2006
Genre: Architecture

With the many additions to the campus of Stanford University since the publication of our book, including the Frances Arrillaga Alumni Center by Hoover Associates / The SWA Group, the James H. Clark Center for Bio Sciences & Bio Engineering by Foster and Partners / Peter Walker and Partners, and the Carnegie Institution by Esherik Homsey Dodge and Davis, it is time for a revised edition of our guide. The original 1891 campus, conceived by Frederick Law Olmsted and executed by architects Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge, balances architecture, landscapes, and the natural surroundings in a composition of classic formal beauty. Stanford is a model of university design, from the nineteenth- century Memorial Court and Main Quad to twentieth-century buildings and restorations that respect the historic campus while contributing to modern design. This revised edition features 16 new pages on the additions to the campus and many updated entries with new photography.
