7 Famous College Romances

Alright, if our calculations are correct then between move-in day and graduation day you could meet a Prince, a future American President, a surfer musician, a quarterback, or a genius.

You could also meet some other non-famous cutie hanging out around campus, but that wouldn't be as exciting. 

Here are the future celebrities that met at college:

Prince William and Kate Middleton

We’ll start with royalty. Before everyone became obsessed with their wedding, their hair, their clothes and their future babies, the couple had a fairly quiet but deeply passionate relationship at a University in Scotland. Rumor has it they had met before, and Kate switched to William's school to be with him. Transfer love.

Barack and Michelle Obama

On to presidency. Though they both went to Harvard they never actually met until President Obama started a graduate program at a law firm that Michelle was working at. Post grad life wasn’t too bad for these two. 

Jack and Kim Johnson

Before Jack’s smooth acoustic songs filled coed dorm rooms in the early 2000’s, they were being used to swoon a local beauty at Santa Barbara City College.  It was just Jack and his guitar, trying to get lucky.

Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia Johnson

At the University of Miami Dwayne Johnson was a defensive tackle the year the Hurricanes won the national championship. That year the criminology major met Dany Garcia and they married two years later. They stayed married for 10 years while Dwayne became The Rock and then became Dwayne again. They are now divorced, but apparently still good friends. 

Eli Manning and Abby McGrew

The two-time Super Bowl Champion also has two daughters with the love of his life, Abby McGrew. They met at University of Mississippi and live in New York and I’m sure donate a ton to the school where they fell in love.

Bill and Hillary Clinton

These two could conceivably become the first couple to both have been American Presidents. Though President Clinton's famous affair came close to ending their long marriage, these two Yale Law studs stayed married and are constantly supporting one another.

Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric

At a school in Switzerland in the 1890’s Albert Einstein met Mileva Maric. They discussed physics, time relativity, and went on cheap dates like the rest of us.

College Life

You don't want to take the wrong classes. You don't want to pick the wrong major. You want to graduate. You want to get a good job. You want peace.

It’s OK. Breathe.

Don't try to be someone you’re not—college interviewers are turned off by insincerity.

The college admissions process can look pretty daunting. The thought of having some stranger in a university office poring over your academic past, then making a decision that could impact the next two to four (or more) years of your life is enough to make anyone nervous.

8 Surprising Things You Can Do While Attending College That’ll Help You Get a Job When You Get Out (but have nothing to do with academics).

Here are 17 Sites to help you get the inside scoop on colleges and the towns those colleges are in.

Freshmen make mistakes. Lots of them. But other people's experiences can help you avoid a few. 

Ask an upperclassman or college graduate what words they associate with “freshman” and we guarantee you that “clueless” shows up near the top of the list. It’s not the freshman’s fault. For the most part, going to college is a totally new experience. And having new experiences means making a whole bunch of new mistakes.

You're set to go on your college visit... here are 10 tips to help you get the most out of it.

Getting your college degree online sounds like every student’s dream. You can go to class whenever you want, wherever you want. No worries about parking, dorms, or schlepping a backpack full of books around campus. Instead of adapting to college, college adapts to you…on your own terms.

But we have to warn you: online learning isn’t for everyone.

Maybe you’ve heard about this whole “online college” thing. Maybe you’re thinking it might be a good option for you. It could be. Research has shown that you’ll learn just as well (and as much) taking classes online versus taking them in-person on campus. But there’s a big “if.” The same research shows that online learning might not be the right way to go for everyone. Is an online education right for you? Ask yourself a few questions...
