What We Do
At CollegeVibe, we strive to paint a vivid picture of what it’s like in every college town in the nation. Accomplishing this requires going well beyond number crunching and basic research, which, believe us, we’ve done plenty of as well. In order to create a website worthy of your time, we’ve really had to "dig deep". This has included spending countless hours traveling and immersing ourselves in towns, even states, that we’ve never been to. We’re just getting started, but we’ve got some pretty awesome plans for the future. At CollegeVibe, we sincerely hope that our information, as well as experiences, will make us your one-stop hub for information on universities and college towns across America.
