Which college students are the best/worst tippers?


By web gangsta | Published:

College students are notoriously cheap.  They’re already living in expensive (for them) housing, likely with three or more roommates, and they’re doing everything they can to minimize their living costs.  Pizza, while tasty, isn’t good for you health-wise.

But it is cheap.

Top Cities to Start Your Career


By web gangsta | Published:

As you prepare to graduate from college and move into The Real World (you know, that place “where people stop being polite and start being real”), you’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what JOB you want to be doing.  What COMPANY you want to do it with.

Maybe you need to also spend some time thinking about WHERE you want to work as well.

Compare your SAT score to a celebrity’s SAT score


By web gangsta | Published:

How well did you do on your SAT as you were applying for college?

For some, their SAT scores were pitiful – often discussed in subsequent college or job interviews by someone who “just doesn’t test well”.

Yes, the SAT can be a numbing experience, and there can be a lot of pressure on folks to do well as a lot of future plans rely on the SAT for advancing beyond mediocrity.

Which university has the highest tuition?


By web gangsta | Published:

Did you go to college (or, if you’re a snob, “university”)?

If you did, who paid for your tuition?  Were your parents able to take on a second mortgage and foot the bill for your four … or five… year stint?  Did you cover the cost yourself?

Student loans are awful, there’s no doubt about it.  But have you ever wondered if maybe you had attended a different, lower priced, school to get the same degree, that having that extra cushion of money available would have made a difference in your post-collegiate life?

Which colleges have the best food, best cafeterias?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch can recall some good times eating at the college cafeteria.

From the unlimited double-cheeseburgers to the fresh scooped chocolate milkshakes (salad bar be damned!), the all-you-can-eat cafeteria was well worth the daily fee that the 21-meals a week program required.

Oh, there were some naysayers.  Some thought that they could eat better in their dorm room for $5 a day, cooking only with a hot pot and a down-the-hall microwave.  An in-room kitchenette?  A shared refrigerator?  These would be luxuries that were not available at the time.

Of course, today is different, and students are picking their colleges for their food as much as they are for their education.

Playboy’s List of Top Party Schools 2013


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s that time of year again, when a young co-ed’s thoughts turn to partying down.

Over the years, Web Watch has shared with you PLAYBOY’S PARTY SCHOOLS list, but they typically are released in the Spring, when high school students are making their choices for where to attend school in the Fall.

This year, Playboy has decided to release their list in the Fall — probably to allow high school seniors a full year to consider where they would like to apply to over the coming months (and for incoming college freshmen to reconsider their collegiate choice, for at least one semester).

Best Business Advice for College Graduates


By web gangsta | Published:

Young adults are graduating college at a slower pace than before.

What used to take an average of four years to earn a college degree is now taking some students five, six, or even some on the seven-year plan.

It’s not like today’s college kids are dumber than college kids before, but there is something to be said for staying in school and learning more while you can – especially in today’s job market where there is cutthroat competition for work.
