While we might have information and comparisons on all sorts of topics to help you make all sorts of decisions, big and small, few are as important as choosing a path in higher education. It’s a huge decision, but we feel our Universities Piki is the perfect place to start–and finish–the search. So, this week we’re having University Week, a special event to concentrate all our efforts on letting the world know about this Piki, our extensive database of facts and comparisons on US universities. Using only facts, we allow anyone to pinpoint a school that fits their wants and needs. We believe everyone from students and parents to high school and university educators will find this tool immensely useful.
You can sort through our massive list of universities in myriad ways, ranking and selecting the important aspects for you while minimizing the things that don’t matter as much, and you’ll receive a list tailored to your preferences. You can sort by as many or as few variables as you like, as well. Seek out a campus merely for the most temperate winters, if that’s what you want, or carefully manage the settings under everything from NCAA division to cost of meal plans to gender breakdown. If you don’t feel the need to micromanage, check out the pre-made templates, which highlight top schools for a variety of categories:
Best University for Academics
Best University for Athletics
Best University for Fine Arts
Best University for Humanities
Best University for Engineering
Best University for Religious Affiliation
Best University for Big City Lovers
Best University for Biggest Campuses
… and many others.
At this time of year the college search is only rising in intensity for many prospective freshman (and their parents!), and, amidst all the hype and marketing, many seekers only want more facts about the universities they are looking into. When it comes to looking for the right university, don’t trust a random search, and don’t give up until you’ve found your perfect school.
