#PHSfit College of the Day: James Madison University

In the college town of Harrisonburg Virginia, James Madison University is a strong and growing option for students in the second or third tenths of their class, and want to get the most of their college experience. Because it is as large as Towson or Delaware, JMU offers diversity of academic study and student background, but because of its remote location, does not have as much of a neighborhood college, so you really feel like you're going "away" to college, at that ideal three-hour drive mark.

#PHSfit College of the Day: Mansfield University

Located four hours due north of Baltimore, Mansfield University is part of Pennsylvania's state system of higher education, and is similar to Frostburg State in other ways as well, like culture, surroundings, size, and admissions standards. Mansfield is a good fit for someone with a 3.0 GPA and looking to study in a quiet location amid nature and the mountains. There is great skiing, as well.

#PHSfit College of the Day: Drexel University

Drexel University is a research-based university just a little smaller than Towson University, but is different from Towson in that it is located in the city of Philadelphia. Drexel is well kno wn for its medical school and engineering and information science programs. Something that makes Drexel unique is that, like Northeastern University in Boston, students basically go for five years because there is a co-op program integrated into its curriculum, which is a really great way to open doors for employment.
