"Cool" website for college hunters

Do you have a student at home who's thinking of attending university in the United States?

If so, here's a website that may provide some assistance: COOL: the College Opportunities Online Locator. (via, in a funny-but-sad posting on blooper from US Ed Secretary Margaret Spellings, who admitted she had a hard time finding information on universities for her daughter.)

A service of the US Department Education's National Center for Education Statistics, COOL allows students and parents to search for US universities by location, major, and/or type of degree. According to the site, visitors will be able to "see and compare profiles of nearly 7,000 colleges and universities across the nation."

You'll find more resources for college-hunters HERE.
