Our mission is simple: Serve as your source for insanely easy — and flavorful! — recipes, cooking tutorials and other ways to make life better, one course at a time. We feature some dishes you can cook in a dorm room, but most of our content applies to any living situation, so you don’t have to be a student to enjoy ’em. A portion of our proceeds (25 percent, to be exact) goes toward student scholarships, so with each visit, you’re improving others’ lives, too.
We’re looking for writers, photographers, advertising partners, sponsors and leaders to grow the Collegiate Cook community. Here are a few ways you can join the team:
We’re all about advertising partnerships, which is more than slapping your logo on a banner—it’s a chance to really connect with our readers in a meaningful way, and know that your ad dollars are serving a dual purpose: expanding your brand while funding scholarships for students in need.
- Sponsor a post or series
- Option A: The post or series features your logo and a brief paragraph featuring your brand with “brought to you by” messaging
- Option B: Have us develop a recipe (or recipes) using your product
- Option C: Let us review your product
- Own a banner ad
- Fund a section of our next cookbook
- Sponsor an event
- Host a product giveaway
We’re so thrilled to have been featured on these amazing media outlets. If you’d like to talk to us (or feature a recipe or images), please feel free to email us at any time at candace [at] collegiatecook.com.
