Ratemyprofessors.com: Students “Yelp” Like Evaluations Strike Back

Well it is at least 25 years to late for me but it is about time professors have something to worry about other than their summer vacation destinations. Ratemyprofessors.com provides students the opportunity, ala Yelp, to rate their professor’s performance in the classroom. Justice? Well isn’t it about time that students, who suffer from so many poor evaluations by unqualified professors, have a hammer to hit back with on this important subject?

Top 10 Cities: Job Prospects For College Graduates To Consider

As a college graduate you are either buried in student loans waiting to be paid, you have lived a bare thread existence, or you are just ready to prosper after a long preparation period called your “whole life.” The following list was compiled from Hannah Clark’s beautiful article in Forbes.com “The Best Cities To Get A Job.”

The numbers represent a small part of why these cities are considered the top 10 cities for college graduates to find a job. Each city’s economy is outlined with new companies or industry highlights. In addition “affordability” ratings for housing (NAR calculator) and cost of goods (Cost of Living Index by infoplease.com) should be areas that students investigate on their own.
