“How can you know if a college is prioritizing education and training rather than amenities or a bloated bureaucracy? One way is to look at the quality of the academic and professional resources (the buildings where classes are held, the classrooms themselves, the library, the laboratories, the career center, and so on) in comparison to the social and recreational amenities (the cafeteria, student union, football stadium, fitness center, and so forth). Go on a campus tour and see how the tour guide “sells” the college.”

“George Washington, the first president of the United States, mastered geometry, trigonometry, and surveying at about the age of twelve, though folks in his day did not consider him particularly bright.”

“You can get a rough idea of what a school values by how it presents itself, by how it seeks to attract prospective students. A final way is to query the students themselves to see what they value. You’re only getting a snapshot, so take it with a grain of salt, but ask them about their study habits, what their professors are like, and what support systems are in place to help students succeed academically and professionally. Observe students in a class during a campus visit and try to get a sense of the overall culture. Is academics important, or is the social scene front and center?”
