So many popular college websites. Whether you are looking for social media websites or online college resources, you have come to the right place. We have compiled a list of the top 5 websites college students will use this fall and they include everything from news sites to social media pages (and no, we did not include Facebook in this lineup since we know you all have accounts on there already) to student help websites.
Popular College Websites
1. CollegeHumor – is a fun site where you can watch videos, check out pictures or partake in discussions about things that directly relate to you as a college student. It is the perfect site to visit if you need a quick study break or if you have a few minutes to kill before class starts.
2. SurvivingCollege.com – is a great site to help you figure out everything relating to college. Whether you are worried about budgeting, partying, studying or internships, you can pretty much find information on anything college here.

3. Google Scholar – is a great way to search for scholarly literature. Whether you need something from an academic publisher, court opinions or scholarly articles, you can use this search engine to find it all. The great thing about it is you won’t need to use quotation marks like you would if you were using the Google search engine. Therefore, it makes things a little easier on you and your search results are directed at exactly what you need.
Popular Social Media Websites
4. Zumeo – This is a must-have network, particularly if you are a junior or senior in college starting to seriously look for jobs. You can use your Facebook or email account to join and after doing so you will be asked to take a short survey that helps to match you up with existing jobs that are geared toward your experience and personality. Zumeo helps you to create an online resume and portfolio (if you have samples) so that you can easily apply for jobs you are interested in. What is really cool is the fact that when looking at different jobs, the site uses your Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts to see if you already know someone working for that company so that networking becomes even easier.
5. InternshipRatings.com – As a college freshman or sophomore, you definitely want to start checking out this site. Everyone knows internships are one of the best ways to prepare you for your career, as well as to help you actually get a job. From the recommendations to the real world experience, internships can make or break your resume when it comes time for applying for jobs. That’s why this site is such a great one. Not only are you able to hear from students who have already had an internship in your area and but you get all the juicy details which is so helpful because if the internship is actually a dud, wouldn’t you rather know about it ahead of time versus spending a whole semester there and realizing you learned nothing? Plus, you don’t even have to join; all you have to do is visit the site and find what you are looking for.
