Question: Do Colleges Vet Applicants’ Social Media Sites?

Answer based on small sample size survey (from Chicago Tribune):  Many do!

From her survey, 67 percent of the schools admitted to Googling a prospective student, and 86 percent admitted to researching students’ social media sites. Why? To protect their school, its reputation, and to avoid potential bad apples from spoiling their brand, among other reasons.

You have been warned!
