Application Development
What College or University is right for you?

Deciding where to go to school is an exciting time. Unfortunately, it can also be difficult and stressful. There are so many factors to consider including cost, distance from home, class sizes, etc. is a database and frontend tool to help students and parents make educated choices based on many criteria. We hope that you find it useful.

Our data is collected from The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), over 7,000 University and college websites, and dozens of other sources including conference and demographic sources.

The application is written with PHP using the Bootstrap framework. CSS and Javascript libraries (Chart.JS, jQuery, Datatables, etc) are used for the formatting and user functionality. MySQL was used as the backend database.
