  • learning is collaborative, not competitive
  • there is a discussion of values in the classrooms and elsewhere on campus
  • there is a sense of community and connection that goes well beyond 4 years of attendance
  • students are there to learn, not to just get a degree
  • students want to tell the story about how the college has changed them
  • admission is holistic and the focus campus wide is on the transformation between orientation and graduation, rather than on the accomplishment of admitted student<

Join the Dallas College Fair on August 16, 2009 at 3pm at the Hilton, Dallas Lincoln Centre, to meet with these select colleges.


Colleges that Change Lives.
Barbara Geller, our college blogger for gifted kids, used this book as a planning guide for family vacations. She had her kids read the descriptions and highlight the colleges they found interesting. It’s organized by geographic region, so if you’re targeting a certain part of the country, you can hone in on those schools. Barbara recommends that you buy your own copy (just click on the link or photo) so you can dogear, highlight, and refer back to it throughout the college search process.
