Meet the First Winners of StudentAdvisor's College Review Contest
By now, you've become intimately familiar with our college review contest. By writing a review about your college experience (or that of your child), you enter for a chance to win up to $500, not to mention the gratifying feeling of knowing you've helped prospective students and their families figure out exactly which college is right for them.
Each month, one winner is chosen at random to receive a $250 gift card. The StudentAdvisor.com judges also award an additional winner with a $250 gift card for the "Best in Class" review from all entries submitted.
Today we announce the first winners of our college review contest!
Alumni Eric H.'s review of Eastern Illinois University has been chosen as StudentAdvisor's "Best In Class" review for the month of September. According to the StudentAdvisor judges, "We believed Eric's review conveyed such energy, passion, and honesty, so he deserves this recognition for helping prospective students of EIU really get a feel for the school."
From Eric's review:
Our athletics programs are out of this world. We have the first women's rugby NCAA sanctioned team, who typically rout opposing teams by 100 points or more. Our players are approachable, you can actually talk to them like human beings and not just idiots who can throw the pill or dunk the ball. Our fight song REALLY gets me pumped for some Panther Athletics.
The second review, which was chosen at random, was an extremely well-written perspective from Mary R., an alumni from Our Lady of the Lake University. Mary had this to say about OLLU:
Since it is a private school, I found all staff including employees, professors and students to be very friendly and helpful. I felt very safe in a family oriented setting. I had no problems getting tutoring or assistance when I needed it.
Thanks to Eric and Mary for being such an important members of our community!
