. Using the College Navigator, look up your chosen institution’s information and summarize its profile. What can you say about the demographics of the student body? What types of programs does the institution offer? How much does it cost to attend? What special features of the institution seem surprising to you? Why do you think students would select this institution over other options?

In order to ensure that there is no replication of institutions selected, please change the subject line of your post to the institution that you have selected. You may “save” a thread by posting your institution’s name, and then return to edit the post with the information for your discussion.
