The Only College Guide for Women, by Women

Her Guide to America’s Best Colleges is the only comprehensive survey of higher-learning options compiled exclusively for women, using a ranking system based on criteria that women identify as most important to them. This guide offers editorial insight and practical advice to help college bound women and their parents or counselors when researching the college of their choice.

In this guide you will be able to review the best advice to help your application stand out among the rest, see what’s trending in the field of S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering and math) for women, as well as learn why safety was such an important factor for the women we polled! You’ll also get the latest college rankings, as we highlight the top 500 and link you to our complete listing of all 1,585 colleges that made our list.
