September 10, 2001: Black Collegian Online
The Black Collegian Online, celebrating the 30th anniversary of its magazine component this month, has long been one of our favorite publications. Whenever we conduct research on college and careers, relevant articles from The Black Collegian consistently turn up at the top of database searches. The usefulness and scope of the magazine’s articles is remarkable, not just for an African-American audience, but for everyone interested in the topics the magazine explores.
The publication’s Website is no different. Here’s how the site describes itself. “THE BLACK COLLEGIAN’s Home Page was launched in November of 1995 to reach an even larger audience with our information on career development, self-development, and job opportunities. You’ll also find information on study abroad programs, health and fitness, graduate/professionals schools, internships/co-ops,and other important information designed to ensure a smooth transition from college to a successful career. Now available online, we hope to reach more students including other minorities, as well as provide the African-American community with information and entertainment they would be interested in seeing on the World Wide Web.”
In addition to its outstanding articles, the site has job listings and an opportunity to post resumes, as well as “channels” on such topics as Graduate/Professional School, What’s Happening, African-American Issues, Global Study, Career Related, and X-Tra Curricular.
Happy 30th anniversary, Black Collegian!
