CollegeAffordabilityGuide.org was launched in 2013 by Degree Prospects, a small team based in Washington, DC that has been publishing education-focused websites since 2008. The group just finished analyzing over 10 million data points related to the 5,000+ colleges and universities in the US, to find the ones that offer both financial accessibility and positive outcomes. For this website, they focused on graduation/transfer rates and loan default rates, with the idea that completing one's studies, and being able to pay back one's loans, together form a reasonable baseline for a worthwhile college experience. Visit http://www.collegeaffordabilityguide.org/ to search for colleges by location or degree program.
This free tool from the U.S. Department of education enables you to search for two and four-year colleges by major, location, and tuition cost. Learn about a school’s admissions requirements, the demographics of the student body, varsity athletic teams, and even the status of campus security.
You are invited to ScrapMaster Studio!
This summer we will create Junk Art Journals, with interactive pop-ups, pull-outs, shadow boxes and puzzles. Our art supplies consist of scissors, tape, and a dazzling array of recycled book covers, papers and boxes from everyday household materials. No special skills are needed. Check out the sample by the magazines display!
There will be five Friday sessions from 3:00 to 4:00 pm : July 10, 17, 24, 31, and August 7. Location: Town Hall. Each week we'll learn a new technique and make something new to add to your journal. Everything you need will be provided. These journals will be yours to keep, and something you can add to, whenever you're feeling creative!
Sign up for as many sessions as you like. It's free, but please register so we make sure to bring enough materials for everyone! To register, stop by the Reference desk or call 973-728-2822.
