About Colleges That Change Lives
Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL) began as a loose collaboration among the 40 schools profiled in Loren Pope’s classic book, Colleges That Change Lives. For over 20 years, our programs have given thousands of students and parents guidance in their college search. In 1996, the colleges and universities formed a non-profit organization to keep Loren’s message alive – the college search should be about finding a list of colleges that are a good academic, social, and financial fit. The non-profit has 44 member colleges and universities, having added four schools after the publication of the fourth edition of the book in 2012, edited and revised by Hilary Masell Oswald.
CTCL member colleges in attendance:
Agnes Scott College
The Evergreen State College
Ohio Wesleyan University
St. John’s College
Saint Mary’s College of California
St. Olaf College
University of Lynchburg
University of Puget Sound
