Some of you may remember the post about a new community called collegecampuses I made about a while back.

Well, we're not so new anymore.

With over 100 members, 50 posts, and 800 photos posted in the last three weeks, collegecampuses is on the roll! If you're interested in finding the campus that fits you, please, stop by, join, and see what we have to offer.

admiralrewd: Some interesting information about a few schools:

College Anonymous Confession board.
This is a growing movement in colleges around the country, and I was curious what you guys thought about it. You can learn something about the few schools for which there are boards.

ukrazy: College Campuses

Introducing collegecampuses
collegecampuses is a new, photo-based livejournal community created to give prospective students the opportunity to view the campuses of colleges and universities they may not be able to visit.

At collegecampuses, we're attempting to compile user-taken images into a easy-to-use tag-based library for the student of the class of 2013 and beyond.
Please join, post, comment, and add the community! The more you use collegecampuses, the more you help others find their fit.

genderpac: (no subject)

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

I'm considering going to college for fine arts but I'm afraid I won't be able to pay back my loans once I graduate. All I've heard about fine arts is that you basically make little to no stable money in it.

What kinds of GOOD paying jobs [if any] can you get with a fine arts degree and WHERE can you get them? State wise. I live in PA if that helps any.

Also, someone suggested to solve my problem I should double major. Good idea or bad idea? Would I be able to work a part time job? My parents aren't going to fork out money for food/gas/school supplies so I will NEED a job while going to school. What's it like to take double majors while you're in school?

demurediablo: OpinionScape

Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you know about a blog I'm involved in with a group of friends called Opinion Scape. We've just graduated from high school this year, and like the people that started this community, college_help, so on and so forth, we're interested in helping out people that are in what was our position one or two years ago - juniors, seniors, anyone looking to university. A year ago, we wanted to know what other people in our position were like and not in relation to one specific university, so we decided to fill that niche.

We intend to blog through our experiences before and after applying to college - our thoughts, issues, resources, regrets, advice... In that way we hope to give you a clearer picture - of where we were and how we dealt with whatever issue universities threw at us - than we could with short comments. Perhaps scare up a laugh on the way. There's a comment corner at the bottom of every entry, and an e-mail contact address for every blogger should you want to ask us any questions, we'll be glad to help.

The site is easily navigable, so you can browse through blog entries by category - choosing universities, tests, application process, admissions decisions, preparing for university, campus culture, etcetera - or by blogger. We have one blogger in a UK university, three in the US, international students, two gap year students (one accepted by a US college, one still to apply), two from large universities, one in a small college, interest in a variety of fields... and more perspectives are more than welcome!

The site is new, and most of our bloggers have just started university, so there may not be an entry on the topic you need an answer for. In that case, just ask us! It's an informal blog by students, for students - an alternative to a long self-help book by someone years away from the application process. :)

If you're interested in becoming one of the bloggers, contact our site administrator and blog creator, Han. If you're just confused and looking for a little help, or someone else's perspective, then drop by the blog and see if we can't be of use! If we are, or not, do let us know.

(cross-posting is inevitable)
