Millennials are one of the most stressed and unhappy generations on Earth. And can you blame us? Most of us were just coming of age when the recession hit. We watched our parents lose their jobs; watched our college funds pay the mortgage and hospital bills; and learned a thing or two about debt, ourselves.

But when has dwelling on the negative ever gotten anyone, anywhere worth being? So at College Mate we aim to help millennials turn their trials into triumphs by providing the tools they need to adult.

And… we have a pretty awesome blog written by college hopefuls, students, and graduates – just like you!

About Us


College Mate is the ultimate survival guide for students. 

Whether you need help with school, budgeting, relationships, landing your first job, or would love to travel and see more of the world – we got you covered!

In time, you’ll find that school has way more to offer than just a piece of paper at the end. It’s just another amazing/terrible/rewarding/frustrating aspect of the millennial journey.

We’ll help you pull through.

      We’d be happy to connect with you on social media. Send us a message if/when you add us on social media, so we can return the favour.

      This is a company-blog, so no self-peace to be made. Thanks for the invite, though.

      All the best!

    Who doesn’t need a survival guide for college!

    Great idea! And great place to get some followers on your blog! All those people around you, I would be advertising your blog in the school paper!

      Hi Diana. We wish we had a college survival guide back then too, but now we can pass on our hard-earned knowledge to the next generation of kids.

      We’re out of school, but advertising in college newspapers sounds like an excellent idea.

      Thanks for sharing!
