Great Resource Sep 8, 2005
This book is great resource for the student considering a Christian College and one already committed to going to one. Good for both parents and students.
Not complete Jun 21, 2004
This book wastes half its space on magazine-style "advice" to high school seniors. The actual "guide" part seems like less than half the text of the book. Catholic colleges are Christian, but they are not included here at all. I don't think Quaker schools are here, either. Most of all, I was disappointed that the information about each college didn't include whether or not the college has a "dry" (no alcohol) campus, which is what attracts me most to the idea of a Christian school in the first place.
It's good but it's not perfect Apr 25, 1999
The Campus Life Guide to Christian Colleges and Universities is two-books-in-one from the editorial staff of a monthly magazine for Christian teens. The first half, aimed primarily at Christian high schoolers looking at Christian institutions, is an excellent guide to the process of choosing and enrolling in college. The second part is a skeletal listing of church-related colleges and universities.
The format for the first half of the Guide is Q&A, dealing with high schoolers' basic questions. Chapters deal with preparing for college, the college search, visiting campuses, applying for admission, financial aid, adjusting to college life and academics, and students' spiritual journeys. There is an additional chapter addressing home schooled students' concerns.
Most of the advice given is rudimentary but well-stated and readable. Highlights include the pro's and con's of working on campus, how applicants should address their shortcomings, an excellent summary of the differences between the SAT and ACT, how student loans can be viewed as a tool allowing people to "think about college as a long-term financial benefit" (p. 74), basic money management, extensive and practical tips for achieving academic excellence, and even what students should do when they think they have enrolled at the wrong school. ...
The Guide overlooks some schools, including several Bible colleges. Flawed though it is, the listing of Christian colleges is perhaps the most comprehensive available and so is a worthwhile reference for any student considering a Christian college. You may also want to get a copy of Peterson's 1999 Christian Colleges & Universities. It provides much more detailed data on Christian liberal arts colleges, but only covers approximately ninety institutions.
