A New Gig: DC Examiner

As if all this blog stuff isn’t enough work, I’ve decided to expand my base of operations by writing for the D.C. Examiner online. To get hired, I had to submit writing samples, agree to a security check, and provide yet another photo reflective of my “personality.” I also had to learn to use new software and find new image sources to illustrate my articles. Luckily, I have a stash of photos from my many trips to colleges around the country, and I expect to avoid copyright issues by using them.

If you are a regular reader of the College Explorations Blog, you will recognize some of the posts—only illustrated! I’m also filling in or removing detail so as to focus more on the DC metropolitan area. stresses that Examiners are not bloggers, but rather credible sources of local news and information. I’m not giving up the blog—just expanding its audience a little by sharing a few posts.

If you have ideas, pictures, or press releases on college admissions or any of the quirky aspects of the college experience, please feel free to send them along. Although I read hundreds of documents each day, I’m bound to miss something really useful or interesting. I can be reached by emailing

Thanks for making this so much fun!
