UT is one of 300 universities to be included in the new guide, which provides information about academic quality, campus setting, student body, financial aid, housing, food, social life, and extracurricular activities. The publication was released this summer.
The university is lauded for its strengths in the fields of business, engineering, communications, education, nursing, architecture, social work, and veterinary medicine. UT also is recognized for providing opportunities to help students get involved.
The Fiske Guide, compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, makes an effort to include a good selection of four types of institutions that seem to be enjoying special popularity at present: engineering and technical schools, those with a religious emphasis, those with an environmental focus, and those located along the Sunbelt, a region that stretches across the Southern and Southwestern United States.
