What's a college collection?

A college collection is a group of schools that all fall into one category, like liberal arts schools in the south, schools with D1 swimming, or colleges where you can ski or go to the beach.

What kind of collections should I create?

You can create any collection you can think of! The more the merrier.

Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices going.

Ballroom-dancing vegan or a soccer-playing drummer?

You've been researching the best schools for your major, interests and lifestyle - now share your knowledge with others. Include where you're applying, and why. Who knows? You might just end up with a new friend.

Touring colleges?

Which schools moved up on your list and which fell off? Share what you loved – and what you didn't – about each college campus you toured.

College counselor?

Which schools do you love to recommend to different types of students, and why? Share your picks with the CC Community and your collection with your network.

Arm-chair admissions expert?

Spread your knowledge of different schools by creating best-college collections by school type, location, major and more.

Can I see some examples?

We thought you'd never ask...

Ok, but I still can't think of any collections to create...
