100 Helpful College Blogs You Should Check Out

September 15, 2010 | posted by Tia Peterson.

Yesterday, CollegeScholarships.org published a list of 100 Education Advice Blogs. The blogs on the list range from providing advice for managing priorities to advice for college parents. This list is among some of the great resources available on the Internet for students and parents, and we encourage you to check it out.

We’ve selected a few from the list that we think are particularly interesting blogs to follow, and a couple more that weren’t on the list, but are awesome additions.

Because I wish someone had done the same for me.”
