One of my favorite college groups is the Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL). The group of approximately 40 small liberal arts colleges formed after Loren Pope wrote a book called Colleges That Change Lives many years ago.
Each of the colleges in the group provide a good education and most of them have reasonable admissions standards. If you are starting the college search and looking for some good solid schools that you may not have heard of before, buy the book.
Colleges That Change Lives hold events throughout the country with representatives from each of the colleges present. These are like mini college fairs with colleges that represent a range of locations, competitiveness, and cultures.
Events start in May in Orlando then move up to Bethesda, Philadelphia, New York and Boston.
Most CTCL events occur in July and August. Go to the their website to see when they will be near you. You won’t be sorry if you go to one of their events.
