To the Editor:

I would add one more tool to your helpful list of college search resources ("Good research can aid college search," Oct. 15). Prospective students and their families should tap the free U-CAN web site (www.ucan-network.org) for free, reader-friendly information about private colleges and universities. The online tool provides access to nearly 500 colorful and graphics-rich college profiles, which include key data and a rich array of hyperlinks to specific pages on institution web sites -- all provided in an easy-to-compare common format. Each college's two-page profile gives information on tuition, student aid, loan debt, enrollment, and many other important variables. With the click of one of each profile's 25 buttons, users can go directly to topic-specific college web pages that deal with internship opportunities, intercollegiate or intramural athletics, campus groups, or any of many other aspects of campus and academic life. In the search for the best college selection, U-CAN makes a difference.
