Get advice. Make college epic.

You're so over high school. But don't start skipping class just yet.

College admissions letters are in, and the word is: you're awesome. Accepted into college and on your way to being college pro you know you are. 

But that college acceptance is conditional. 

Unless you’ve lost a textbook during your high school career and had to pay to get it replaced, you probably haven’t paid too much attention to the cost of textbooks. 

And who can blame you? If you’re lucky enough to go to a school with enough textbooks, someone may have even handed them to you for free every year.

In college? Forget it. You’re gonna pay. Big time. 

Give yourself an edge when you graduate, now. 

Your degree is amazing and we wish that's all you needed to get a job these days. But as it turns out, some work experience is essential—many students are finding themselves in internships even after they graduate.

So how about an internship, right now?

Easier said than done, we know. To help you out, we compiled some tips for finding and landing that dream internship.

Bad interview questions are the #1 cause of unemployment in the US. #Fact


But whether you're preparing for an internship or full-blown job interview, there are just some questions that don't need asking. Unless you don't want the job, in which case, ask away. 

Trying to find a top-notch education on the cheap? Look no further. 

If the Mid-Atlantic US has your heart, we pulled together some public colleges and universities from Kiplinger that will put your (or your parents') hard-earned dollar bills to good use. And who doesn't love that?

How can you be expected to get anything done when the library is so good for people watching?

While there definitely are legitimate reasons for stress in college, many people torture themselves with the ittiest-bittiest of inconveniences. That's why we compiled some of the most ridiculous "college problems" out there.

Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. 

So if these sound familiar, relax and be thankful that these are all you have to worry about:

These mascots are a little freaky, but we kind of want to hang out with them.

A school's mascot is an integral part of its identity. The person/element/animal/mystical creature serves as a common bond between classmates, alumni, and faculty. 

They can be cute, intimidating, refined, silly, or all of the above. Hit just the right combination, and you can create something pretty unique. And if you're into unique, one of these colleges might be for you.

Congratulations! You've been accepted to the wedding of your dreams.

Engagement season is upon us (to the dismay of some), and while you're probably not ready to settle down, there are a lot of people who've been planning their weddings since infancy.

Exams? Complete. Bags? Packed. Super productive break plans? Not so much. 

Your winter break is an awesome time to relax and have fun with your family and high school friends. Take a breather, you deserve it. But once you've recovered, start thinking about how you can use at least some of your time productively. 

We see that eye roll, we know, you're just so stressed out. 

But really, getting a couple elusive tasks out of the way isn't going to kill you.

Not only will you save about half on tuition, but you won’t have to travel as far and may even end up in school with people you already know.

Odds are that if you’re trying to decide which colleges to apply to, you’ve paid attention to how the schools you’re interested in “rank” on various scales.

Go to class! 

On average, college students miss 26 classes each per year. That's some serious slacking off. 

It's okay to take a break. It's less okay to house a bag of cheese puffs while you're doing it. 

When you're in the zone, studying can be a breeze. But inevitably you will run out of steam and need a breather. 

To make sure you stay on task during your break, heed this advice from Qwerty:
