I’m not the only one around here who has something to say. These are College Info Geek’s contributing writers – people who have written more than just a couple articles. College experts in their own right.
He plans to speak English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese on a conversational level before graduating, and plans to see much of the world.
His music is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Grooveshark, and many other sources of music, but his music can always be found in its entirety at either his Bandcamp, for official releases, or SoundCloud, for singles, remixes, features, and everything else.
Chris Wilkins is one the three writers who started as part of College Info Geek’s “second class”, which came on board in June 2011. Chris is a senior at Iowa State University studying Management Information Systems (it seems MIS majors like to blog). He’s a server admin at Gateway Insurance company in Ames, IA, and also works as a management intern at the Iowa State University Solution Center (where both Thomas and Andrew once manned the phones).
Although he is destined to work with computers in a career with minimal human interaction, he strives to increase his knowledge of social media. He likes to write mainly on the effects of social media on people and how they interact, with some occasional nerdy stuff (ZOMBIES!)
Also, he is a future billionaire, and plans on spending his billions on frivolous expenses, such as mansions covered in all shag carpeting.

Ryan joined College Info Geek in June of 2011 as part of the “second class” of writers. A senior at UC Santa Barbara, Ryan studies microbiology due to his odd fascination with bacteria. Originally blogging on his own website, PracticalPremed, he met Thomas through the blogosphere and now looks forward to interacting with the College Info Geek community.
Ryan’s writing focuses mostly on his obsession with productivity strategies, as he has experimented with a variety of “study hacks” ever since early 2010.
When he’s not blogging or experimenting with “study hacks,” Ryan also works as a communications intern for a Doctors Without Walls, a non-profit that provides medical care for the homeless.
With blogging as a side-gig, Ryan intends to apply to and (by Merlin’s beard) be attending medical school in the near future.
Visit his personal site to learn more. Currently in the middle of application process, Ryan writes about his (very long) road to become a physician.
Hema is a sophomore at the University of Michigan studying Civil and Environmental Engineering, with a strong interest in Public Policy. Although she tends to make people think she has her whole life planned out, she actually has no idea what she wants to be doing in ten, or twenty, or even thirty years from now. (Forty years from now, of course, she’ll be incredibly famous for doing something really cool and/or taking over the world.) She’s also very intent on proving to her peers that engineers can right good two.
Hema’s interests include cooking, dancing, showering at odd times throughout the day, arguing for no reason, and pretending to know what she is talking about on her personal website. She’s a big fan of mindless television and classic literature that she knows will put her to sleep. She’s also an avid music listener, and tries not to be picky. Currently, she’s really into old Bollywood, the Beatles, and dubstep.
Meghan is a student at Denison University studying English writing, with strong interests in literature and art history. She has wanted to be a writer since the age of 7, and she encourages you to request a signed copy of her best-selling novel now, while it is still in the pre-pre-production phases! In addition to her lifelong careers of writing and vampire slaying, Meghan hopes to work for a publishing company as some form of editor, and possibly teach in the future.
Her passions include writing, reading poetry, improvisational theater, drinking tea, playing pretend, and sunflowers. Meghan has never missed the opportunity to watch ‘Star Trek: the Original Series, and her interest in all things quirky is best represented by her tendency to invent catchy tunes, despite her complete inability to sing.
