Top 10 Websites Every College Student Will Love
I often see college students spending their time online fiddling around on Facebook or YouTube. These sites are cool in their own respect, but let’s face it. YouTube has slowly become a clusterfuck of advertisements, and Grandma Gertrude signed up for Facebook last month.
I think it’s time to branch out.Seriously. Close out of that Facebook creep session right now. Thanks.
Here are 10 entertaining, informative, and just plain wonderful websites that every college student needs to check out. Let me know what you think!
Rate My Professors has been around for a while, and it has become a favorite of many college students during class registration.
This website contains tens of thousands of student-submitted reviews for professors all over the nation. Professors are given a 1-5 rating on Overall Quality, Helpfulness, Clarity, and Easiness. They even get a chili pepper next to their name if they’re sexy!
This site has allowed me to avoid shitty professors for a couple years. It is a Godsend that you would be foolish to ignore.
I have had an ongoing love affair with StumbleUpon ever since I checked it out about a year ago.
StumbleUpon is a website that helps you find incredible web content that you otherwise would have likely never discovered.
You simply enter your hobbies or interests, click “Stumble”, and are instantly presented with a webpage that StumbleUpon thinks you might like. It is surprisingly intuitive. If the webpage doesn’t interest you, click “Stumble” again, and you’re off to the next suggested page in a couple seconds.
Mark my words. This website is the future of college party playlists.
GrooveShark allows you to effortlessly create online playlists without ever downloading or paying for any music. It contains almost any song you can think of. If you’re having a party, using a GrooveShark playlist is the perfect way to really get the girls going wild.
The true beauty of Grooveshark is that you can easily add song requests from girls and watch as the girls go into a frenzy when the song plays a few minutes later. Having someone handling the laptop behind a bar or DJ booth is ideal. That way, you avoid girls who feel the need to constantly change the song and kill the vibe.
Warning: If a girl requests a song and you know it sucks, do not play it. Better to piss off one female than murder the party vibe with a Lady Gaga fiasco.
I’m aware that most people have heard of Twitter. I just don’t think you people realize how supercalifragilisticexpialidocious it is!
If you actually want to be heard, Twitter is a place to find your voice. Your followers can grow into the thousands if people like what you have to say. Twitter allows you to carry on casual conversations with some of your favorite celebrities, while also keeping tabs on your friends.
Twitter is a place for unlimited creativity and friendly conversation. Compared to the transparent status updates and bullshit friendships on Facebook, Twitter is fucking Narnia!
Whether you’re preparing for college or in college right now, you would be wise to go to this website and bookmark it immediately. CollegeThrive is an archive of useful information that will help you to succeed throughout college and avoid some of the common pitfalls along the way.
If you’re the type of college student who likes to get shitfaced, this is the website for you. SofaKingDrunk is the place to find Drunk Dials, Drunk Pictures, Drunk Stories, Drinking Recipes, and everything in between.
In other words, it is paradise.
What college student doesn’t love movies? If you said “me,” then you can lick my taint. Movies are where it’s at.
Rotten Tomatoes is my favorite site to find movie ratings, new releases, and movie reviews. This website provides you with movie ratings from critics, the general audience, and your friends via Facebook. (Okay, I guess Facebook is good for something.)
If you’re a huge movie-goer, this website is an absolutely splendid way to discover movies that you will be dying to see.
Texts From Last Night presents you with a hysterical compilation of text messages submitted by party-goers from around the country.
I know I’ve spent a couple hours having a good chuckle while reading through texts such as this one. “Dude, I fucked her last night with nothing but my bandana on. Like straight Indian chief style.”
If you’re a fan of hilarious drunken text messages, this site will be worth your time.
Okay, I know Urban Dictionary is pretty old school, but I thought it deserved a place on this list. Since 1999, Urban Dictionary has been constantly adding user-submitted definitions for just about every slang term known to man. Most definitions are crude, witty, and downright fantastic.
With almost 6,000,000 words defined, Urban Dictionary is a comedic achievement of epic proportions and will continue to cause laughter for many years to come.
If you’re not in a Greek House, just ignore this one. You probably won’t like it. If you’re a member of a Greek House, then Total Frat Move (TFM) is perhaps the most amusing of websites you have come across. TFM displays user-submitted quips that pertain to acting “fratty” or “sratty,” followed by the classic “TFM” or “TSM,” to denote a “Total Frat Move” or “Total Srat Move.”
While some Greeks may be taking this website a little too seriously, it succeeds in providing all of us fraternity and sorority members with a few good laughs.
