You'll be able to publish on with the potential of getting hundreds of thousands of people reading your awesome college-themed posts!


You could post a rivalry quiz, write a list about things only your school will understand, round up some awesome dorm-friendly recipes, or write something that everyone can relate to.


Here's the rundown on some important things for you to know:


To get started, all you have to do is sign up for a BuzzFeed account, and then go to!

From there, you will be taken to our CMS (Content Management System, or posting interface tool). This is where you can create all the lists and quizzes.

When it comes to posting photos, GIFs and embeds are your best bet! They are easy to search for, they look beautiful in posts, and they are overall a great way to convey the emotions you're going for.

The more relatable, fun, and original your post is, the more likely it is to get promoted!
