About Us


College-Dirt.com was started as the personal site of two parents looking to find out the real truth behind education in the US. There are countless websites out there which tell you great things about college. Unfortuantely, those tend to take money to recomend one site or another serving as merely an advertising service for colleges. Our goal is to allow parents to make an educated decision on the expense of a college education.

Because we don't take money from generating college referrals, we are free to publish whatever facts on institutions that we feel as parents of college age children feel are relevant. We may even publish inconvenient facts about different institiutions that could actually cause you to think twice about attending. We are not looking to blacklist any institutions, as many of the problems highlighted here are problems in general with secondary education. The goal is simply to promote thought and discussion between parents and their children.
