Best College Blogs to Subscribe to

September 12, 2008 By: Category: Best College Tips

Although I think the myUsearch blog is the best blog in the world (duh), I read several other blogs on a regular basis and many of them are quite good. I’ve decided to put together a list of my favorite blogs that I thought you might enjoy as well. Note: I’ve read through so many blogs, it’s possible I’ve forgotten to mention some of the best. If any of your favorite blogs aren’t mentioned, please leave a comment. 

My Methodology:

There is nothing scientific about the way I chose these blogs, they are just a list of blogs I subscribe to. Important: There are a ton of other college-related sites that are worth a visit, but this is a list of blogs worth subscribing to. That means they provide consistently good content on a regular basis in a blog format.

  1. Best Scholarship Blog: I think the best scholarship blog to subscribe to is Callie Herd’s Planning and Preparing for College (Scholarships & Internships, etc.). Callie has a ton of resources on her site (especially for minority students) and she lists upcoming scholarships and deadlines that are actually worth applying to. Subscribing to her blog is a great way to sift through the thousands of scholarships out there. Honorable Mentions: I also recommend subscribing to fastweb’s email updates and you can also read my list of the best scholarship sites or find a huge list of FREE scholarship search sites at
  2. Best Admissions Blog: My favorite college admissions blog is written by Dean Flagel, the Dean of Admissions for George Mason University. Unlike a lot of admissions sites, Dean Flagel isn’t trying to sell you admissions consulting or advice, he just tells the truth (with a few shameless plugs for George Mason). His no-nonsense approach is a great cure for the admissions voodoo sites that try to scare you into buying admissions advice. Honorable Mentions: The College Confidential Forum is a great place to ask admissions questions. The “C” Word offers great college admissions info from the student perspective, and the Admissions Consultants blog is also worth visiting.
  3. Best College News Blog: The US News Education Section offers a variety of articles relevant to high school and college students. If you subscribe to the education section, you will receive all of the college education-related articles and blog posts from US News.
  4. Best Student Experience Blog: Written by our own student blogger, Jillianne Hamilton, Kill Jill Goes To College has chronicled Jill’s experience from the time she applied to her first week of college. Now that Jill has finally made it to college, you can find out what it’s really like to be a freshman.
  5. Best Blog for Online Students: For students interested in pursuing an online degree, I highly recommend subscribing to the e-learning pundit. The blog covers online degree-related news stories and offers a weekly post to announce new online programs from colleges across the country.
  6. Best College Experience Blog: In this category, I think HackCollege and CollegeCandy are in an even tie. Although both sites are mostly geared toward students in college, they both offer a view of what it’s really like to be a student. HackCollege offers slightly more serious advice of how to get into, and actually make it through college and CollegeCandy offers a bit of comic relief and less serious student life advice like: How to Prepare for the Walk of Shame
  7. Best Blog for Going Green: One of our other guest bloggers, Trish Smith, works for Greenstudent U, a blog whose mission is to make the world greener, one campus at a time. The blog gives simple tips to reduce your impact on the environment without breaking your already-tiny student bank account.
  8. Best Blog in the World: Obviously my opinion is a little biased, but I do think the myUsearch blog is one of the best blogs out there because: 1) the blog covers most everything a student needs to know about paying for, choosing and getting into college, 2) we go to great lengths to make the blog completely objective and unbiased, and 3) we offer diverse perspectives from college admissions and financial aid experts, students, employers and college graduates. I know this is shameless self-promotion, but seriously, I think it’s worth subscribing to.

As I mentioned, I’m sure there are plenty of other great blogs out there, so feel free to comment and recommend some more. Also, if you are interested in reading more of the articles I discover every day, you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter.
