Twitter's Top Ten for College Admission

By: Judi Robinovitz | Last Updated: April 16, 2013

College-bound students are bound in another way – their connection to social media. Among the media, Twitter has gained tremendous favor in providing an array of up-to-date information to assist a student and family with college planning. Here are just a few of our favorites for students:


@ACT and @ACTStudent

Tweets about the ACT. You can also ask questions about the exams


Keep tabs on upcoming deadlines and testing dates for the SAT and AP exams


Q&A about the Common Application


Huffington Post: news about college admission and college life


Updates and advice from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid


Updates from "The Choice," a New York Times education blog


College-related tweets from USA TODAY


Tweets from the National Association for College Admission Counseling, an organization comprised of thousands of high schools (including yours), colleges (including the ones to which you’ll apply), and educational consultants (including me)

The Twitter accounts for any college in which you’re interested – from @UFlorida to @Harvard! Nearly all schools have social media accounts, and Twitter is a great way to stay connected with up-to-the minute happenings on their campuses
