Cool for college
High school students looking to prepare for collegiate life need to look at Student Scoop (www.studentscoop.com/index.html). With helpful articles, advice columns and more, the site has the information that college-bound students want to know.
Student Scoop won't bury you in an avalanche of stats and numbers. Instead, the site relies on testimony from university officials and successful college students. For example, in an article on how to excel in college academics, the site talked to several student affairs officials from schools across the United States. The site also references useful college prep books. For instance, the site's article on how to write term papers uses direct excerpts from Mark-Alan Stewart's "Real A+ College Term Papers."
Visitors will also want to check out Student Scoop's "Insider Q-and-A." The section features common questions many high school students face while getting ready for college. Past questions include whether AP (Advanced Placement ) classes are worth the extra work (the answer is yes) and what items an incoming college freshman can leave at home.
In addition, Student Scoop features information on scholarships and reviews of test prep materials. It also has contests for visitors to enter, monthly to-do tips for high school juniors and seniors, plus a parent's section for your mom and dad to check out. What more could you ask for?
