Reflecting data gathered in the 2004-05 academic year, this two- volume reference presents statistical and practical information about accredited, degree-granting institutions in the US, numbering over 1900 total, and organized alphabetically by state. The entry for each school describes the school, its history, structure, calendar, characteristics of its freshmen, admission procedures and requirements, degree requirements, distinctive programs, ROTC, degrees conferred, financial aid, teaching staff, enrollment, and library collections, among other information. The age and ethnic makeup of the student body, student housing, and number of international students are also described. The entries are composed from questionnaires sent to the schools. There are indexes by institution and degrees offered, as well as a subject index. This is a well-organized reference, handy to any prospective student. The 17th ed. is listed in Resources for College Libraries.
