How to Use LinkedIn to Research Colleges

Most folks probably think of LinkedIn as a networking tool for working professionals, but it can also be useful to people planning to go to college.

LinkedIn offers an option to search for colleges by name, major, location, and other factors. Universities have their own LinkedIn pages where you can learn about the school, its history, its curriculum, and its students. You can even research alumni of the school to see their professions and learn which companies they work for.

Whether you’re a current student looking at colleges or a college graduate aiming to get a higher degree, you’ll find LinkedIn a helpful source of information.
