College Dreaming is a mobile-friendly website that provides a more holistic and engaging approach for prospective students and their families to search and ultimately apply to universities across the United States. As fewer students are enrolling in college and with the new reality that is COVID, colleges could lose up to 20% of students. With College Dreaming, we took all of the traditional and non-traditional information that students and their families are interested in, such as costs and student life, and put an emphasis towards a wider array of institutions. College Dreaming also has an engaging quiz feature for a fast and easy way to see potential universities and OpenStreetMap integration to explore a campus virtually. With these features, College Dreaming gives the ability to increase college applications to a wider range of institutions through its personalized and engaging approach during, and after the COVID pandemic.
