Site's Topical Content Channels Support Student Life in and Beyond the Classroom, Including Campus Safety, College Survival, Personal Finance, Health/Fitness, Career Center, Alumni, Parent's Place, High School Student Prep and Merchant Offers/Discounts

COCONUT CREEK, FL--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Amid International Education Week 2007 this November 12-16, student success advocate welcome2college.com, Inc. today announced the launch of its Web site located at www.welcome2college.com, serving as a one-stop online destination where college and university students may access both academic and non-academic lifestyle-related information, advice, resources, support and special offers to help them succeed before and after graduation.

welcome2college.com is a content-driven, advertising-supported Web site where current and prospective college and university students enjoy 24/7/365 access to a variety of topic-specific content channels to help them manage life in and beyond the classroom. Channels include campus safety, college survival, personal finance, health/fitness, career center, alumni, parent's place, high school student prep and merchant offers/discounts. The company also publishes "The w2c," a free monthly electronic opt-in newsletter that spotlights the welcome2college.com's hottest and latest-breaking offers, content additions and student success stories.

"Studies have shown that today's college student is the first emerging adult segment that grew up with the Web. As such, this group collectively looks to and leverages the Internet for a large portion of their needs -- information, products, services and otherwise," notes Roshelle Jones-Hirvonen, founder and CEO of welcome2college.com, Inc. "Our site provides higher education students convenient single-point access to a myriad of resources that'll help them succeed from a 'whole life' perspective, while also offering advertisers and merchants the opportunity to contextually target a desirable and highly receptive consumer niche. It's a win-win all around."

Further validating the company's concept and approach, numerous companies elected to advertise on welcome2college.com for today's launch, including industry-leading online retailer CableOrganizer.com, e-Health category leader eDiets.com, InsureMyDormRoom, ChristArt, Stadium Pal, LifeOrganizers.com, Great Management and Ruthy Watson's Innovative Wellness. Those interested in advertising on welcome2college.com may contact Michelle Carroll directly at mcarroll@thew2c.com to request the company's media kit.
