Tips for Clueless Collegians

CNET News staff
College students who are savvy in class but clueless outside the cloistered halls of academe can turn to Tripod this fall, at http://www.tripod.com.

Aimed at providing college students with practical knowledge about personal finance, health, travel, culture, and community, the free site will offer more than 500 pages of content. It will also include online versions of Fodor's Berkeley Guides, and excerpts from The Wall Street Journal Guide to Understanding series on personal finance.

Up in preview form currently, the site will be expanded in September and will not charge a membership fee initially.
