College Prowler is the needed link between students and guidebooks. It's students, writing for future students, about their student experience. It's like having an older sibling that went to the school and is telling you all about it.

About the Author
College Prowler guidebooks are in the hands of students throughout the entire process of their creation. Because you can t make student-written guides without the students, we have students at each campus who help write, randomly survey their peers, edit, layout, and perform accuracy checks on every guide that we publish. From the very beginning, student writers gather the most up-to-date stats, facts, and inside information on their colleges. They fill each section with student quotes and summarize the findings in editorial reviews. In addition, each school receives a collection of letter grades (A through F) that reflect student opinion and help to represent contentment or satisfaction for each of our 20 specific categories. Just as in grade school, the higher the mark the more content or more satisfied the students are with the particular category.
Each guide is the result of endless student contributions, hundreds of pages of research and writing, and countless hours of hard work. All of this has led to the creation of a student information network that stretches across the nation to every school that we cover. It s no easy accomplishment, but it s the reason that our guides are such a great resource.
When reading our guides and looking at our grades, keep in mind that every college is different and that the students who make up each school are not uniform as a result, it is important to assess schools on a case-by-case basis. Because it s impossible to summarize an entire school 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 College Prowler will serve as a valuable tool in your college selection process. Enjoy!
