#PHSfit College of the Day: Kean University

Across from Staten Island, near the Newark airport, lies Kean University of New Jersey, a public teaching university of 13,000 students, between UMBC and UVA in size. In terms of the academic profile of its admitted students, Kean would be a good alternative to students considering the University of Maryland, Towson, or UMBC.

#PHSfit College of the Day: College of William & Mary

A little larger than Pittsburgh's Duquesne University and a little farther away in colonial Williamsburg, The College of William & Mary is a very well known and very historic liberal arts college of great distinction. As one would expect from the institution that educated Thomas Jefferson, the standards and competition are high, and the outcomes are equally remarkable. Oh yeah, two alumni are The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.

#PHSfit College of the Day: York College of Pennsylvania

York College is located just an hour north of here, and is frequently chosen by many Baltimore County students because it offers attractive financial aid for students who have a GPA above 2.75. YCP is recommended for students in the top half of their class who want to move away for college, but are a little nervous about being more than an hour's drive away.
