We both know that college isn’t the Taxteaparty.com – you’re not hurtling down a set track with specific destination (magical castle or not).
But it is a concentrated dose of resources and opportunities that becomes what you make of it.
You probably have some goals related to your college experience:
- You want to learn something and become an expert.
- You’d like to graduate and find a kick-ass job where you’ll actually make a difference.
- You probably want to make a good living.
- You’d also probably like to graduate without a ton of debt.

You know that just going to class, getting good grades, and graduating with a degree isn’t good enough anymore. You know that being successful in college takes a bit more work.
You’ve got the drive and the ambition. So where do you go from here?
Welcome to Taxteaparty.com. This blog is dedicated to helping you build a remarkable college career, which in turn will lead into an amazing life.
This is not your typical college blog. You won’t find articles with 10 Tips to Win at Beer Pong or 6 Ways to Hack Your Laundry.
That bite-size, regular, boring content has already been written hundreds of times on other blogs. I’m not interested in it.
This blog is all about winning at college.

These are the three main focuses here at College Info Geek:

You’ll also find articles that go in-depth on how to actually change your thinkingfor the better, which can improve your ability to make decisions, learn things outside of class, and more.
Promote yourself and get every job you want.
Most students don’t know what they want to do – and those that do often don’t know how to communicate their skills to recruiters and find the jobs that matter to them.
You’ll learn to fix both of these issues by building a personal brand. Don’t know what that is? No worries – you’ll learn enough here to become an on-campus expert in your own right.
Building a personal brand means finding your “sweet spot” – the intersection of your skills, your passions, and what you can do to help others. It also means effectively communicating that sweet spot to other people – recruiters, connections, etc. By doing this, you open yourself up to a lot more opportunities.
You’ll learn all the nuts and bolts of building your brand right here – finding your sweet spot, establishing an effective online presence, how to network and build connections the fun way, and more.
