Visit Post's new higher ed page

CampusOverload.jpgAfter months of planning, discussing and learning, my colleagues and I are excited to announce the launch of a new higher education page:

Bookmark it now. This is the place you should go to keep up on news from colleges near the beltway and far from it.

In addition to stories that Post reporters and bloggers write about college life and campus happenings, there also are links to fantastic work done by our counterparts at other newspapers, blogs and online publications.

My favorite part of the page is a live Twitter feed that features all messages tagged #wpcollege. If you have a campus-related tweet that you think our readers might like (perhaps a story in your college paper, a recap of a student government debate or a rant about grading papers on a Saturday night) use the hashtag.

The page is also an easy stop on your way to our two new college blogs:

* My blog, Campus Overload, which you can read more about in my welcome post.

* And College Inc. by Daniel de Vise, the Post's higher education reporter. Dan blogs about the business of running a college: "Admissions and aid, pedagogy and tenure, marketing and rankings, access and attainment." You can read more about it in his welcome post.

(And special thanks to Jay Mathews for the kind shout-out in his college-focused column today.)

Dan and I are both still getting used to the idea of instantly posting news to the world and trying to decide what stories our readers want to read -- so help us out.

Send us story tips. Send us links to interesting Web sites. Let us know what features to put on our blogs. And don't be afraid to tell us what you hate and want us to change. (I'm at; Dan is

And, of course, both of us will still be regularly writing stories for the daily newspaper -- so pick one up at Starbucks the next time you have a chance. Seriously.

Please follow my blog all day, every day at
