Fourth Carnival of College and Finance

Welcome to the Fourth Edition of The Carnival of College and Finance! There were many great submissions this time around. Unfortunately, some had to be denied because we here at College and Finance can’t accept more than one post from one web site. Some people tried to spam, and failed miserably. So, here you have the best of the best, meaning the submissions I think readers would find most useful. Feel free to submit to future carnivals or send me an angry e-mail if you weren’t included and you feel your Mortgage Refinancing article somehow applies to college students. Without further adieu, here’s the Fourth Carnival of College and Finance.


Joy Miller presents 10 Online colleges offering credit for life experience posted at Online College Blog, saying, “Several reputable, regionally-accredited colleges and universities allow you to earn credit for life experience.”

Mark Montgomery presents College Navigator Assists College Search Process posted at Great College Advice

College Humor

Dean presents The Latte Factor: Starbucks is Evil posted at Mr. Cheap Stuff, saying, “Don’t be a sucker of marketing, think twice before you buy your next Starbucks coffee.” Upon reading this article, we here at College and Finance have hence forth tried to reduce the amount of daily visits to Starbucks to no more than 5.

Ken Nubo presents Unlimited freedom for young people posted at Ken Nubo, PUA extraordinaire and ranting buddhist.. On a side note, I disagree with his rather negative stance on going to college, but his ranting is amusing nonetheless.


Matthew Paulson presents College Students – Get MS Office 2007 Ultimate for $60.00! posted at Getting Green. I know what you’re thinking; “Didn’t he just complain about spam in the first paragraph?” You’re right, but this is actually a pretty good deal, plus, it at least applies to college students. Also, this is my carnival, so I win.

Eric Hebert presents 13 Must Read Blogs For College Students – College posted at college degree. College and Finance didn’t make the list, probably because we didn’t send Eric a fruit basket last Christmas.

Credit Cards

Moneywalks presents Some quick notes on Credit Cards posted at moneywalks.

Mr Credit Card presents Citi Dividend Platinum Select Card for College Student Review posted at Ask Mr Credit Card’s Blog. Another credit card review, another chance for students to get in debt. Remember to think before getting a credit card!


Shawn Farner presents Start a dorm room business posted at, saying, “If you aren’t keen on the traditional campus job, why not be your own boss?”

Everything Finance presents Saving for Kids College Education posted at Everything Finance.

Dhawal presents The Fundas of Funds posted at If you’re interested in funding, check this out, if not, then that’s okay too.


Steve Faber presents – College Consolidation Loans – You Could Be Paying Too Much For Your Education; After You’ve Been to College posted at DebtBlog.


Jimmy Atkinson presents The Self-Directed Student Toolbox: 100 Web Resources for Lifelong Learners | OEDb posted at OEDb: Online Education Database.

The Career Counselor presents Three Characteristics All New College Grads Need posted at ask the CareerCounselor.

Danogo presents Internet Censorship is Alive, But Not Well: Web Proxy Sites Still Allow Free Speech posted at, saying, “Article about how schools are censoring the Internet and inhibiting free speech. Explains how to get around firewalls with the Freespeechinator instant proxy finder.” A great submission for those who love the Constitution.

Randy Nichols presents Career Advice by Randy » Blog Archive » Career Planning – Are You Following a Planned Career Path or Simply a Series of Jobs? posted at Career Advice by Randy, saying, “Successfully managing your own career is critical for your financial and personal well being. Yet it is rarely pursued on a strategic or informed basis.”

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of Carnival of College and Finance using our carnival submission form. Once again, no more than one submission per web site will be accepted, and keep the content somewhat useful to a college student. If I get another post about refinancing a mortgage, I’m going to make a YouTube video of myself crying like a little girl. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
