The Wall Street Journal's personal technology columnist, Walt Mossberg, provided favorable reviews of a new college information site, Unigo.
Here are some excerpts from the review:
- "...this is a college-information resource built for the age of YouTube and Facebook"
- "Although it's only a few months old, it already covers about 250 colleges and universities, and claims to average dozens of student-created reviews, photos and videos for each college."
- "The videos are the most interesting part of Unigo, because they provide a look at current students and at the campus that isn't often captured in standard guides."
- "Unigo deliberately seeks out pro and con opinions. Many of the student submissions are enthusiastically positive, but plenty are negative comments on campus social life, the costs, the food, the faculty, the dorms and other topics."
- "Still, Unigo is a good example of how user-generated content can do a lot to enhance an important topic, and still keep editorial standards."
Sounds like a useful service for researching college choices.
