BACKGROUND
Seventeen Magazine, the popular teen magazine that has for nearly fifty years provided fashion and glamour tips, now offers a student-friendly college locator tool. The search criteria are surprisingly complex, and cover an astounding array of interests and must-haves that narrow results to only those schools that you will feel comfortable attending. Don't like the outcome? Change your criteria and search again.

Seventeen's college search service is provided by Princeton Review Services, but don't let the name fool you. Princeton Review is the developer of “Counselor-O-Matic,” the data processing program that allows you to scrupulously define your school desires. Do you want to become part of the debate team, the school newspaper or an ROTC club? Seventeen Magazine considers those criteria as well as lesser known categories such as Improv Comedy. The types of information that will be taken into consideration are:

- Extracurricular activities
- Athletic preferences
- Religious affiliation
- Geographic setting
- Demographics
- Interest in student organizations and clubs, and even fun questions like the celebrity status of your parents.

The college information pages provide balanced information, in both general and detailed categores. (Detailed information can be obtained by clicking on the links).  General categories include:

- Student feedback
- Enrollment stats
- Popular majors
- Campus life
- College Rank
- Tuition
- Extracurricular Activites
- Financial aid

PRO
