#1 for reading about your favorite University or College++

All your favorite content in one place. Looking for your local, regional, national or world news. Want to read your favorite magazine or the latest financial. But what I most enjoyed was that I could follow all of my kids school news from one place, in real time!

Sleek news app

Simple and sleek app that offers many local and college papers conveniently. Their “Interests” feature is really nice and allows me to focus on articles that I prefer to see. Their content catalog always seems to be expanding too.

Amazing Idea And Execution

As a college student myself I can definitely say it’s easy to get lost in all the different kinds of information sent around and it’s nice to know Spotlight exists to make it easy to stay in the know.
