Marlboro College - Wikipedia

Wed, 08/22/2018 - 23:32
"Marlboro College is a small, private, academically rigorous liberal-arts college located in Marlboro, Vermont, United States, with an enrollment of 195 students. The College received a perfect academics rating of 99 from The Princeton Review in 2014.[1] Students at Marlboro create an individualized course of study in collaboration with faculty members and participate in a self-governed (self-run) community. Students pursue a self-designed, often inter-disciplinary thesis, the Plan of Concentration, based on their academic interests that culminates in a major body of scholarship. Marlboro was ranked #117 (out of 1,611 institutions) among liberal arts colleges in the United States by U.S. News & World Report in 2017.[2] The College's unique facilities that can be used by students include an organic farm, a solar greenhouse, Marlboro's own nature forestland preserve, and an aviary. Weekly "town meetings" are held to vote for and change the College's bylaws."

The 25 Best Small Colleges – 2016 University Rankings | College Raptor

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 22:57
"Small colleges can be great for students who are looking for a more personal feel around campus. Not only are you likely to get more one-on-one time with your professors, but you could easily know just about everyone on campus. In our Best Small Colleges rankings, we looked at colleges of all types that enroll fewer than 2,000 undergraduate students. The schools that made our top 25 are diverse–from all-women’s colleges on the east coast, to California schools nestled among the urban sprawl, and quaint midwestern college-town campuses. These rankings are based on factors including graduation rate, student-to-faculty ratio, endowment size, diversity on campus, and selectivity. This information is gathered from the latest available data submitted to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). These are the 25 best small colleges in the U.S.: … 9. Soka University of America" [17 in 2017 16 in 2018 ]

The 25 Most Desirable Small Schools

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 22:57
"We scored our desirability ranking based on yield (the percentage of accepted students who enroll), admissions, test scores, endowment, student-to-faculty ratio, retention, as well as climate and the quality of facilities, housing, and dining. When we adjusted our overall school desirability ranking to include only those with fewer than 2,500 undergrads, Cooper Union ranks at the top because of its very competitive admissions rate (it accepts a lower percentage of applicants than Yale) and zero-debt guarantee. Traditional liberal-arts schools in New England also make a strong showing, as do the Claremont Colleges. A notable outlier is O'More College of Design, a tiny, predominantly female arts school just outside Nashville, Tenn., modeled after Paris's Le College Feminin. It claims fewer than 250 undergraduates, but coming in at No. 10 is College of the Ozarks, whose motto is "Hard Work U" because its students work on campus rather than pay tuition. The private Christian college also strictly prohibits drugs and alcohol and boasts the highest yield of any school on this list." … "[24] Soka University of America may be small, but it's big on diversity. Though the much younger sister school to the Soka University of Japan has only been around about a decade--and enrolls just 378 undergrads, the school has already been noticed in Newsweek's rankings, taking spots on four of our "best of" lists. It is the 20th most desirable suburban school in the nation and the 24th most desirable small school. It is also 12th on the list for diversity. This makes sense when you consider the college's mission is founded on Buddhist principles of peace and human rights and the responsibilities of global citizenship. The college draws over half of its student body from countries outside the United States and includes in its four-year curriculum (and tuition) a semester abroad for every undergraduate. Located in Aliso Viejo, in Orange County, California, the private liberal arts college occupies 103 acres just miles from the beach, which helps account for its 16th position in the list of schools offering terrific weather with strong academics. SUA claims a 9:1 student-to-teacher ratio and an average class size of 13 students."

"Hi, my name is Merlyn, I just applied for food stamps I just moved to California, with my boy band Dropped out of a good school, hippies in my commune I left 'fore the rent was due, used to want a briefcase And a short commute, used to wanna sell coke And whip an Audi coupe, crazy if I did that Wouldn't be talking to you Walking through the pit falls of a college student Crazy how you get them letters and that make you feel accepted Til you walking 'round the campus and you the only African Nobody with passion, just cats that take direction well Take acid trips to find themselves, well..."

Once upon a time, a summer spent scooping ice cream could pay for a year of college. Today, the average student's annual tuition is equivalent to 991 hours behind the counter.
