As of 6/10/11 About College no longer appears to have a functioning webpage.
About College states explicitly that they do not provide information concerning college selection, admissions or financial aid. However, if you have questions regarding the college experience, this site presents a nearly-limitless array of articles on topics ranging from homesickness to parenting the college student.
In fact, the information they provide concerning campus policies, living away from home and who to call for what, at your particular institution for higher learning is good preparation for the college experience. They even have a section for recipes, for the college student who finds themselves a slave to junk food. And, because the tips section is remarks provided by other students, the messages are both relevant and unbiased.
– Friendly format for both parents and students
– Allows you to pose a question if it is not answered
– Has a section for student tips

There is no expense for utilizing this site.
This information is not discussed on the site.
Schools are neither listed nor searchable.
The entire site effectually addresses the student’s experience on campus.
Although there are many forums and blog sites available once a student arrives on campus, this is a site that allows both parents and high school students to explore the many facets of college life.
