I discovered this new addition to LinkedIn via this Mashable article, “LinkedIn’s New University Pages Help Teens Network Before College“.
Complete pages aren’t available for every school, yet, but even the basic pages provide some insight into the makeup of each university. As Universitys complete their pages, you will be able to interact with students and alumni to learn more about a school you might be interested in attending.
I’ll be using this, along with my son, to check out potential colleges. He is only 3 years away from college life, and I believe in doing everything you can to learn about the various opportunities available.
