Web Spy: Stingy Campus

[There are over 100 million sites on the Internet. 100 million! You might think you know about all the important ones (CollegeCandy, Gmail, Google, Facebook…), but there are thousands of other sweet sites out there (like Teach Parents Tech, We Are Hunted and Paper Back Swap) and more showing up every day! We get it – it’s not easy or fun sifting through the crap and porn to find those gems, so we’re gonna bring the gems to you. Just sit back, kick up those feet and allow us to introduce you to the diamonds in the internet rough.]

Winter Break is awesome: there are no tests to study for, you get to spend time with your friends and family, and you can get lots of sleep. The worst part of Winter Break, however, is that it just seems to go by too quickly. Sooner than you probably want to think about, you’re moving back into the dorms, buying books,  and dropping those 9am discussion sections you got stuck with. However, the process of preparing for the upcoming semester doesn’t have to be a hassle.

With Stingy Campus, planning your semester is easy, because everything you need is in one place!

Stingy Campus allows you to search housing, roommate and job postings and browse the online marketplace to buy and sell items (such as old textbooks or furniture). Utilizing the listings on Stingy Campus will not only save you a bunch of time by putting everything in one place, but it will also save you time (and money) by allowing you to connect with people on your campus or nearby campuses to buy and sell items, instead of having to wait for and pay shipping on an online order.

Stingy Campus also helps with the academic aspect of college. There’s a searchable database for class notes, in case you’re too hungover sick one day and can’t make class. They also offer a “rate a professor” system, which can help you choose classes based on what other students had to say about the professor. You can help out your fellow students, too, by uploading your own notes and contributing to professors’ ratings.

They also feature some pretty sweet giveaways. They just gave away an Android Netbook, and they’re currently running a contest to win an iPad! You can learn more about how to enter that contest here.

Stingy Campus makes getting ready for school/life faster and easier — so you can spend more time working on that Spring Break bod or, dare I say it, reading for pleasure!?
