What I Wish I'd Known About My First Days on Campus

Over the next few weeks students all over the world will be heading off to college. For roughly one quarter of those students, it will be their first time on campus (not including those visitation tours). Unigo, a site that provides reviews of colleges for prospective students, has launched a new page specifically to offer advice to incoming freshmen. What I Wish I'd Known About My First Days on Campus offers incoming freshmen first-hand advice for transitioning to college life. The advice comes from current students in the forms of text and video content. Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see all of the content.

To learn more about Unigo, please see my previous review of the service.

Applications for Education
If you have a child that is heading off to college this fall or you know students that are heading off to college this fall, Unigo might be a good source of first-hand advice for those students.
