The US Naval Academy

Like the U.S. Navy itself, it is not a school for the faint of heart. The USNA exists to prepare young people to become officers in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. In fact, all students serve at least five years after graduation.

Northwestern University

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Chicago is my kind of town. From its beautiful architecture to its picturesque lakefront, this city is one of the prettiest that exists.

Auburn University

Close your eyes and imagine that every time you hear the song Sweet Home Alabama playing on the radio, you would actuallybe HOME in ALABAMA!

Kalamazoo College

Established in 1833, Kalamazoo College is one of the oldest institutions in this history of our country. So you could say that they’ve had some time to get this whole higher education thing down pat. Located in the small town of (you guessed it) Kalamazoo, Michigan,

University of Indiana

Indiana University. As a former Chicagoan, the Midwest is as near and dear to my heart as chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream (which, for the record, is pretty high on the near and dear chart). I love the people; I love the seasons; and more than anything, I love the laid-back, happy culture

When I think of the University of Tennessee, only one word really ever comes to mind – football. As someone who attended another SEC school, it’s hard for me to see much past an opposing school’s sports program.

University of Puget Sound. College means many different things to students. Sometimes, it represents a time and a place to explore your interests, a chance to experience new environments,

Lawrence University

If the only thing I had to tell you about Lawrence University was that it resided in a city in Wisconsin called Appleton, it should be enough to convince you to print out an application right now.

Deep Springs College

So, maybe you aren’t a student who is looking for the typical college experience. Maybe football games and lecture halls just don’t excite you the way that they do some of your peers. But, I have two words for you that may just get your college excitement wheels spinning. Ready? Cowboy scholar.

Occidental College

Occidental College is sometimes overlooked in Los Angeles in favor of schools like UCLA and USC, but it’s really a hidden gem: a liberal arts school located right here in the city.

Georgia Institute of Technology

Truth: I always wanted to be an astronaut. Okay, okay, everyone on the planet wanted to be an astronaut at some point in their lives. But with the current spotlight on our country’s space program and the Mars rover mission, my old ambition

Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame is more than just a school. From its presence in the film Rudy, to its long-standing reputation in college football, if you’ve heard the words “Notre Dame,” chances are you didn’t think of the cathedral in Paris.

Ladies, listen up, because this month, we are going to talk about a college that is completely devoted to the empowerment of young women like you!

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

With just under 30,000 students claiming the Tar Heel title, it is hard to believe that the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill can be so focused on the number 1.

Pomona College

This month, it’s time to bring the College Spotlight home. By this I mean Pomona College in Claremont, California, just 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

University of Florida

The University of Florida is my alma mater, but I’m going to try to be unbiased when telling you about it. So, here we go. It’s the best school that ever existed, and you definitely should go there over ANY OTHER SCHOOL.

St. John’s College

St. John’s College is a place that’s either extraordinarily right for you or totally wrong […]

George Washington University

It’s summertime and my eyes are seeing red, white, and blue! But it’s not just my Firecracker Popsicle and American flag bathing suit in my eye line. I’ve also got my sight set on The George Washington University, and let me tell you why.

Colorado State University

Ah, the Old West: cowboys and covered wagons. A place that inspired Americans from the East to pack up their belongings, say goodbye to their families, and ride off into the sunset in search of adventure

Cooper Union

The Cooper Union provides a Harvard-level education with the personal style of, say, your quirky older cousin. Think leggings instead of ascots, and nose rings instead of (or in addition to) earrings. CU is a perfect fit

University of Louisville

The crazy awesomeness of March Madness is upon us, and like all bracket participants, we love to bet on the underdog. Now maybe calling the University of Louisville an “underdog” seems a little dramatic.

College of the Atlantic

For this month’s spotlight, we’re going to get specific. I’m talking which-shade-of-nail-polish-best-matches-the-imbalance-of-your-chakras-today specific.

Louisiana State University

Close your eyes. Now, imagine your life as a college student. Are you blinded by your school colors? Maybe by flashes of a game-winning touchdown? How about images of rushing a fraternity or sorority?

De Paul University

Imagine living right in the heart of one of the coolest metropolitan cities in America, having access to amazing museums, unique food, and and unbeatable shopping …

Flagler College

Admittedly, when you think of Florida, you think of old people, Jeb Bush, and Gloria Estefan. Oh! And Disney World! But guess what else you should associate with Florida? Flagler College. Yep, that’s right!

University of New Hampshire

University of New Hampshire. Full disclosure: my sister, my parents, and several of my aunts and uncles went to the University of New Hampshire. And I grew up twenty minutes from the school.

Rhodes College

Rhodes College will change your life. Seriously. I mean, that’s why it’s a part of […]

Do you love the idea of going to college in Washington D.C., but can’t stand the thought of big cities? It’s that old oil and water issue.
