Did you know there are over 2,000 four-year colleges and universities in the United States? Can you name them all?
Of course you can’t! You can name the ones you know, the ones you and your friends attended, the ones you hear about in the media. Our job as college counselors is to help you go beyond those names, and find the hidden gem colleges that you may not know about – but which may be a great place for you to continue your education!
Magellan counselors Caleb Fitzpatrick and Evelyn Jerome-Alexander share details about some of our favorite hidden gem colleges. We discussed a few of the colleges in this presentation in-depth, and just gave a few nuggets of info about some of them. You can download the full presentation here:
