Websites like facebook, where you can search for any student in the world and join any group you could possibly imagine, are becoming immensely popular these days. You can find people with similar interests or someone who has class with you, or you can just find an old friend from high school to reconnect with. If you are someone like me who is a facebook addict, I've got another website for you to check out: CollegeClub.com.
CollegeClub.com is intended for any college student who is looking for an excuse not to do homework or is just bored and wants to kill some time. It has something for everyone. You can see this just by looking at all of the links at the top of the page. If you are interested in sports, gadgets, music and movies, politics; you name it, they have it.
In each one of the links they have a few popular topics to choose from. You can post comments for each of the articles and read what other college students have to say. Toward the bottom of the page are the top stories for the day. They include game, movie, and music reviews, as well as the U Life Feature and articles written by other college students like you.
Appearing on the right side of the page are ads that appeal to college students, a daily poll, flight and bus schedules, and a career and college link to search colleges, scholarships, and loans.
Once you can't seem to get through your day without a dose of CollegeClub, there is always the option of becoming a member. Members can get mail and IMs through CollegeClub and search for other members. Also, they can join clubs and chat with other college students.
The format of this website alone is enough to attract viewers. The layout of the webpage is very well organized, but also very eye-catching. The use of bright colors along with moving text and pictures really reel in the target audience, but isn't too much to make it cluttered and confusing.
The logo of the site, "Hook up in more ways than one.", sums up the purpose of the page perfectly. Not only can you get connected with other college students like yourself, but you can also get "hooked up" with the information every college student wants and needs.
