    Monsters University

    Exploring a college website without having to visit a “real” college website. Removes bias towards our alma maters, etc. From Nansie Rogers: “Students loved this website because they felt as if they were exploring a real school. Even has pages that were “under construction”. Great way to introduce college life/activities.”
