Kaplan/Newsweek Guide Recognizes Baylor Among 'Most Interesting Colleges'

July 17, 2002

Baylor University has been named one of the nation's most interesting colleges by a new Kaplan/Newsweek publication, The Unofficial, Unbiased Insider's Guide to the 320 Most Interesting Colleges, by Trent Anderson and Seppy Basili.

The publication is targeted at high school students and their parents to help them make informed decisions about which college to attend. The Kaplan/Newsweek guides, which are not funded by the schools they evaluate, stress "straightforward unbiased information that help prospective applicants make the most informed choice possible during the application process."

The new guide recognized Baylor as "a good educational value" and included a two-page profile about the school. During the last two years, Kaplan/Newsweek's college guides have named Baylor a "top choice among schools that guidance counselors would attend if they could repeat their college years" and "schools that are academically challenging."

The Guide to the 320 Most Interesting Colleges is available in bookstores.
