The 50 Most Amazing College Campuses

When choosing a college, many students overlook one of the most important factors: quality of life. At The Best Colleges one of our goals is to emphasize to students the importance of the context and learning environment in which they choose to get educated.

You’re famous! But while everybody knows about the Lindsays and Mels and Charlies and OJs of the word, famous folk who completely lose their mind after being sucked into the vortex of celebrity, not everybody knows about those precious few celebrities who find fame and fortune even after seeing the inside of a jail cell.

10 Commencement Speakers You Wish You'd Had

Graduation is an exciting time, but let's face it: Commencement speeches aren't always memorable.

Yay!"). So here are 10 commencement speakers—and their inspiring, funny, and just plain on-point words of wisdom—that we wish we'd heard on graduation day.

7 Things You Should Know About Food Dyes

What’s wrong with the natural color of a pickled pepper? That’s what I’ve been wondering for at least a year, ever since I decided to avoid artificial food coloring whenever possible and found that jarred Greek peppers only come in FD&C Yellow #5.
