Finding Future Me Authentic Texts

I had this vision of the kinds of things I wanted to find for a unit on college life, and it looked kind of like a textbook with charts to compare different statistics and pictures of college kids being (model) college kids in various countries.  Is it my key words? Am I looking in the wrong places?

I did manage to find a college application for some college I've never heard of in Mexico.  It seems the schools I HAVE heard of are into online applications, and want me to actually apply to get to the rest of the applications!

I have also found a blog with suggestions on how to evaluate a school's reputation, among other things.

What's missing is what I think kids might really want to know: where do students live, and what do they do in their classes and for fun?  It seems like there's got to be some kind of magazine or advertisement that universities would put out, but I don't know how to find such a thing, if it exists!

At the very least, I'm finding it easier to pick out what words to teach for pre-reading!

But now, I must continue my search for interesting articles...and possibly pictures to add more context
