Our site was made in efforts to help those who do not have access to information on college and how to apply. We are encouraging other students to pursue higher education, and prepare for their college education. Some are made out to believe that college is not achievable due to it being extremely expensive, but with the help from our site, it will inform students on how to make college possible for themselves.

Many people pay for a college counselor these days, but others are unable to do so.

We aim to give everybody the resources that a college counselor would give them.

One technical problem we faced was learning how to use a web design framework called Bootstrap as none of use had experience with frameworks prior to this project.

Indu, Ariana, Tyra, and Jen are four girls from the Bay Area who met at Girls Who Code at Adobe Emeryville. They each have a passion for technology and joined GWC SIP in order to explore the field and possible career opportunities. Their idea for College Insider stemmed from their desires to provide equal opportunities for all. As a team, they all wish to promote the idea of getting a higher education and to make it easier for people to do so.
