Join the Conversation on FastWeb's Discussions
June 22, 2009
Whether you’re looking for peer-to-peer advice or a place to share your experiences and vent, you’ve found it. For the first time, FastWeb users can talk to each other and chat about everything you’re going through preparing for college, being an undergrad student, applying for grad school and more.
On FastWeb’s new Discussion Channel, you can get advice and chime in on career advice and tips, applying for schools, financial aid, scholarships, life as a student and even chat with others in your academic year. You can also share your insight with FastWeb, offer feedback and let us know what you’d like to see on the site.
Here’s how it works:
1. Go to Discussions.
2. Click on a category.
3. Get in on a conversation—or start your own!
It’s that simple.
And don’t forget to upload your photo or avatar so your fellow FastWeb friends know who they’re talking to.
One more thing: before you get started, check out the Discussion Guidelines. Remember to keep it clean, friendly and respectful. After all, this is YOUR community!
Here are a few chats already taking place on the Discussion boards:
- My mom won’t let me choose my own major!
- Help! I have a CRAZY roommate!
- Can I use extra loan money for spring break?
- How can I tell if a scholarship is a scam?
