10 college youtubers who inspire my grind - the best college youtubers to follow asap

This post will show you the college Youtubers you need to follow ASAP.

College is a life-changing experience. For most students, moving to college is their first-time leaving home and living on their own. This transition is not easy, especially when you’re a freshman and all of the people around you are going through the same struggles at the same time as you are. 

Luckily, we have Youtube to help us with all of these problems.

The college Youtubers listed below post vlogs about their different experiences at college. From organization tips to dorm/apartment tours, you’ll be able to find a slew of helpful advice on their channels.

These college vloggers also share their process for navigating the hurtles of college. Watching their videos throughout your own college experience can be comforting and informative. Especially if you’re able to find vloggers who attend the same school as you or are in the same major as you, these vlogs can be super helpful.

If you’re ever feeling unmotivated, watching some college Youtubers can help guide you by giving you perspective and inspiration. They’ll show you how they stay focused or how they spend their time. Or, if you just enjoy relaxing to a Youtube video, these are the people to watch.

Here are the college Youtubers I can’t stop watching:
