Fiske Interactive allows you to go beyond the book and streamline your college search with the following resources and tools:

  • Plan your college tour with built-in Google map function
  • Find school deadlines and application dates
  • Email admissions departments directly from the app
  • Browse each college website
  • Check out comparable campuses (“overlap schools”)

Fiske Interactive also allows parents and students to quickly and easily organize their top choices using lists and notes:

  • Flag schools for a second look
  • Categorize the schools you are interested in by using the “Safety Schools,” “Probable Schools,” and  “Reach Schools” list feature

The app allows you to browse through the guide with a swipe of your finger, view photos of each campus, or search by your chosen criteria, including state, campus location, enrollment size, academic program, Fiske rating, or just a keyword.

It’s the next best thing to being on campus.
