Los Angeles, CA, January 30, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- HackCollege, a leading lifehacking blog and podcast for college students, today announced a new product that will allow universities inside the United States to freely syndicate all HackCollege content in college newspapers for no cost. This release aims to increase the reach and readership of all HackCollege content.
Three members of the HackCollege team are spearheading the project: Loyola Marymount University students Kelly Sutton and Chris Lesinski along with Yale alumna Rosario Doriott. The three are responsible for the bulk of the HackCollege editorial content.
“We see this as an opportunity to change the way students think about written media,” said Sutton. “HackCollege is a labor of love. We're not expecting to profit on this endeavor and we love our content. That's why we want to provide an easy way to syndicate it.” From this date of publication, all HackCollege content can be syndicated through participating college newspapers.
HackCollege has been described by lifehack.org as “cynical (in a fun way) and unabashedly anti-authoritarian.” The HackCollege Newswire emphasizes such a description. HackCollege believes that strapped-for-cash student publications should not have to pay for good content.
HackCollege is a lifehacking blog and podcast written by and for college students. While its audience spans all demographics, the content focuses on student life and student success. Founded in September 2006 by Michael Kelly Sutton, HackCollege has seen steady growth and adoption. Along with Yale alumna Rosario and Loyola Marymount students Chris Lesinski and Scott Rowan, the blog is updated on a daily basis while reaching more than 30,000 people per month.
In September 2007, Chris Lesinski, Scott Rowan, and Kelly Sutton added podcasting to the blog's repetoire. Since September, 15 episodes have been produced to date, with more than 100 regular viewers and syndication through iTunes, Miro, Veoh, and other new media syndication platforms. Past sponsors include Adult Swim, Animoto, and Cafe Podcast.
