CollegePrep 101 — Home To All Your College Preparation Needs

I think kids coming into college should know what to expect, considering I had no clue and no one ever told me how hard and stressful it would actually be. It would have been nice to have had a heads up.” – Raven, College Freshman

This statement from a college freshman perfectly sums up the reason CollegePrep-101 was created in 1997 – to help students prepare for and succeed in college.  We believe the more you know about what to expect when you get to college, the better prepared you’ll be to deal with it, whatever it is.
