#PHSfit College of the Day: George Mason University

Thanks to its recent appearance in the NCAA mens' basketball final four, George Mason University has been riding a wave of increased popularity, essentially making admissions a bit more competitive than Towson University. Also similar to Towson, GMU is a medium-to-large state university that is not quite as competitive or popular as its flagship partner. GMU's academics are strong in business, computer science, and liberal arts. Conveniently, George Mason is located in Fairfax, VA, which is just over an hour from home.

#PHSfit College of the Day: Wilkes University

If you were to follow the Susquehanna River north from the Chesapeake Bay, you'd come upon an old town similar in history and size to Aberdeen, called Wilkes-Barre. In addition to King's College, Wilkes-Barre is also home to Wilkes University, a private, unaffiliated liberal arts university that is experiencing growth in reputation and popularity. Taking a computing class in high school is recommended for admission to Wilkes University.
