College life can be crazy… that’s why we’ve compiled 100 awesome tech tools for college students. Whether you are studying, socializing, finding food (our first three categories), trying to land a great internship or looking for a way to pay for tuition, we’ve got you covered. As usual, we’ve included plenty of brand new startups so there is a ton of fresh new content to explore. Isn’t it nice to have everything in one convenient, bookmarkable place? I saw that a popular tech blog has been publishing “back to school” posts with subjects like “the top 5 iPhone cases” and a few “dorm gadgets” that seemed really lame. So, I thought I’d hook you up with some actually useful tech tools that will help you rock at everything from academics to relaxing. Game on. If I missed anything good, leave me a comment to let me know!
