America's Best Colleges 2008

US News & World Report's much discussed, often-maligned college rankings guide has been updated for 2008. Aside from rank, you can search for colleges based on cost, location, majors and sports and activities. Check out the Top 100 lists for interesting cuts of data, including colleges with the most students in the Greek system and the most students studying abroad. Beware that some portions of the Web site require a login/subscription to the "premium online edition" for $14.95. If that seems pricey, you can always visit the Warrenton Library to look at the print edition.

If you plan on studying at a college or university outside of the United States, you may want to look at the Academic Rankings of World Universities.
