There are more than 2,400 four-year colleges and universities in the United States, and many more globally. As college selection consultants, we are continually learning about schools, their programs, and the students who love them. We research, network with other experts, and hit the road often.
In 2018 alone, we visited 40 colleges and met with admissions officers and students. Here's a sample of photos from our travels, followed by a list of the schools we've visited.
