I really enjoy watching vlogs while I’m cleaning my room, making food, or doing other work that doesn’t require 100% concentration. For the past few years, there have been a TON of college YouTubers that I always watched because they were fun and ~relatable~, but as a senior, it’s a little weird watching freshman dorm move-ins. If you’re looking for more “first apartment tour” and less “first college party vlog”, here are a few channels to check out!

Kris Hui

She just graduated in the spring, so most of her content has college as a general theme, but her videos are mainly focused on productivity, motivation, and health (she does a lot of fitness challenges and talks about her workouts in vlogs). Her videos are usually around 20 minutes long, so they’re great to watch while you’re prepping/eating a meal, or while cleaning your space!

Nicole Rafiee

While technically still a college-age youtuber (she’s a senior), most of her content is not college-focused, and she has said that she doesn’t want to be associated with school. She has a great variety of videos, ranging from closet cleanouts, how to manifest, and playlists. 

Raimi Reyes

If you like self-care, soft cottagecore vibes, and learning how to love yourself, this is the channel for you! Her videos are all about feeling amazing on the inside and outside, and she has tons of daily vlogs, makeup videos, and always pushes the message of embracing and enhancing yourself! These are my go to videos when I’m waking up, going through emails, and getting my space ready for the day.


She’s a college senior, but her channel is mostly short vlogs focusing on her life, the people around her, and the space she’s in. These videos have the best vibes I have ever seen on YouTube, and I cannot recommend enough!!! She also has a great voice and uploads original songs and covers.

If you like watching videos as much as me, I strongly encourage you to check these out! They still have that productive energy like most college content, but they’re definitely focused on a slightly older demographic. Hope you like them!
