HC's Ultimate College Life Survey 2013

One thing we hear from collegiettes over and over is that you love HC because we give you the real deal on what’s really going on at college under the surface—stuff like using fake IDs, sexiling, cheating on exams, racking up credit card debt... and more. So that's why we conducted HC's Ultimate College Life Survey, where we surveyed over 2,700 girls from over 750 colleges across the country to get you all the info about all the nitty gritty stuff you're dying to know, but feel too awkward to bring up even with your BFFs.

Over the summer, we released a new installment of the results every Monday for seven weeks, and we laid it all out there about dormcest, plagiarizing, study drugs, underage drinking... you get the gist. So go ahead and check out our portal of pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted to know about what’s really going on in college life! And don't forget to check out HC's Ultimate College Guy Survey and Ultimate College Girl Survey for everything college girls and guys think about dating, hooking up, personal grooming, marriage, and more!
