Hi all,

I am currently compiling a book with a secured publisher about what people don't learn in college. The book combines real-life stories from recent graduates with time-honored insight from industry experts. I can use some help from graduate students as well, as there is an entire chapter on the topic.

I need more grads to interview! Would you mind filling out the questionnaire at http://www.kristenfischer.com/college.htm or sending a friend over to the site? I can use more submissions ASAP and would love to hear from you!

Anyone studying abroad in Ireland, or at least thinking about it? If you are definately check out this link:
NBCU gave ten college kids a chance to video document and take pictures of their studies abroad- this one is Roger, he's in Ireland and he is a photography major so his pictures are AMAZING!!
Have Fun and Enjoy!

hi guys,
(if this post isn't OK just delete it...)

i'm looking for you to help other college students. i'm publishing an article called "freedom overload" in http://www.collegebound.net in the fall.

FROM MY EDITOR: As pitched, new college students are often overwhelmed by the amount of freedom they have for the first time in their lives. Share interesting real student stories of how too much of a good thing turned bad, and what they had to do to get back on track. Find specific anecdotes -- maybe a student who actually had to go back home after one semester, or a student who was "saved" by his/her school's student center or RA -- followed by some great expert advice on how to balance newfound freedom with responsibility, and/or what resources colleges have to help students adjust. Please include student photos.

I'm looking for anyone who overloaded on freedom and had to get their act together, or even wound up getting kicked out of school. 
1. How did it affect them? 
2. Did they get their act together and how? 
3. What advice do they have for other students?
4. What are the good and bad points of having more freedom at school? What can students do to enjoy it but not lose themselves?

If anyone can help, please email me at jerseygal526@yahoo.com with answers to the above questions. Include your name, age, school attended and attach a 300dpi headshot. I will confirm with you before anything is published.

Make Your College Admissions Easier- Get this book [12 Apr 2006|09:47pm]

A few years back in my college searching days, I found a book that profoundly changed my life. A college admsissions book. If you only read one college admissions book, let it be this one.

All in One College Guide

Why? Because college admissions is filled with such hype and stress, a perfect time for the colleges to load you with propaganda and take advantage of your vulnerabity in this time. You need something to help you navigate the, shall I say, crap. This book come from someone with many years in this field who knows many of the tricks and scams and helps you avoid many pitfalls. He gives such great tips and gives you the big picture so you can always remember not to stress out over little things. He gives you relatively unknown secrets that many high school, college, and adult age people do not know. He also debunks many of the things many of the other books claim you should do. This book is more practical, straightforward, and useful then many of the other books.

Sure in high school they give you pamplets and teachers tell you to 'apply for college', but this book lays the ground out very perfectly. Consider this the starting point for your college admisions job, the book tells you all the other resources you will use along the way (Fiskes, 331 Best Colleges, ect). Choosing a college, how to pay for it, getting in, and what to do while you are there- this covers it all.

I have read many of Marty Nemko's articles (also very helpful) and his other book Cool Careers For Dummies (also a highly recomended read) and I cannot recommend him more highly.

One last note:
Remember that colleges are a BUSINESS withthe main motive of making money. Don't take anything they say at face value. Investigate things for yourself.

(This isn't an ad- this book changed my life. I had to share)

I hate doing this, always have, but promotion communities are worthless, and ya never hit your targeted demographic ^_^ budget_travel: A community for the budget traveler geared mostly toward college students or those of fixed incomes *who can not afford big fancy expensive travel agents, and overinflated online trips) to discuss trips that they have already done on a shoestring budge.

How does one clean a cell phone?

I have a Sony Ericcson t616 and the part with the keys has some minor stains or stuff from sweaty fingers and such.

Oh yeah, and how do you get the "dust gunk" from underneath the keys on a laptop? [I have a hp pavilion zt1000)

New [06 Dec 2004|03:24pm]

Hey, I just joined this group :) I'm going to a 2-year community college right now (this is my 1st year) and I'm transferring to a 4-year college this upcoming fall. And while I thought I'd always go into education, some new majors (and/or minors) have caught my interest. I know a general "overview" of the majors, but nothing too specific, and I'm interested in what the career opportunities would be, as well as some more info on what the subjects of study would be like. Here are my potential choices:

  • Women's studies

  • Ethnic studies

  • and...
  • Environmental studies <----and does this major involve a lot of science?

If you've majored in these or just generally know a little more about them than I do, any info you could give me would be greatly appreciated :)

Helloooooo [30 Nov 2004|08:45pm]

[ mood | happy ]

I'm new :) Cindy, 20, sophmore at Temple University.

Who's excited for Christmas break?!? If I wasn't a broke college student, hahaha, I'd go somewhere really cool (which in my opinions, involves the sun/beach/beautiful weather). But I am a broke college student, so I'll settle for Canada. There's nothing wrong with Canada though, you can drink when you're 18!!!

Well, I'm off to the library to study for finals, once again. ACK.

Talk with you soon,

Well, it's almost that time.. [23 Nov 2004|10:19pm]
And papers are almost due. You may even have a few classes worth of papers. And no time to do them all?

Well I'm off school this semster and normal college life jobs have been boring me, so I'm trying something new. I write custom papers for those kids in a jam.

So here's the deal. Email me your assignment and due date. Sending me the info as soon as possible is good too of course. Be sure to be specific as possible when emailing assignment information. It IS a custom paper. We'll talk money stuff. I write your paper. And you paypal the money.

Take care.

Hey everybody..
I'm a student at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs :P), and was wondering if any of you had any advice whatsoever for receiving student loans, other than those I'm eligible for through FAFSA.
I'm planning to get a generous amount (yes, I know what this means for me in the future - but I believe it's worth it).
ANY advice is very appreciated.
Thanks guys
