a battle-tested college approach designed by students for students
in the New Economy. That means better job prospects, fewer student loans, and less stress.
These 2 principles are core to everything we do.
HACKiversity principle #1
You're Doing COllege Wrong
Today, every student receives the same (broken) advice: attend the best colleges, work really hard, and graduate with a stellar GPA from a top university. Then, upon graduation, the student lands a dream job and lives happily ever after. It's like a three-step process for 18-year olds.
To make matters worse, typically, everyone advising students—parents, teachers, professors, and administrators—are older, having played the college game decades ago. Yet the they continue to offer college advice for a reality that hasn't existed in decades.
And students are paying a hefty price for following this bad advice. Crushing student loans, widespread underemployment, and unfulfilling jobs have become the norm for recent college graduates. Make no mistake: the costs of getting college wrong have never been greater.
