Before finals start and the semester ends, the nation's students will flood the site during HuffPost Live College Week -- a full plate of special programming that starts today and will spotlight the issues that matter most to students in colleges, community colleges and universities.

Each day, HuffPost Live and HuffPost College will cover a specific aspect of college life -- from social life to academic life to real life -- with help from students who will participate from their dorm rooms and apartments on campuses both big and small. Professors, experts, advocates and members of the broader HuffPost community will join them for interviews and panel discussions on these issues.

HuffPost College has hosted scores of students, academics and administrators who've brought fresh eyes and unique perspectives to problems plaguing college campuses and the world beyond them since its founding in 2009. On HuffPost Live, their insights have driven conversation and have resulted in some of the platform's most talked-about segments. So it's natural for us to put our heads together while there's still time before finals.

If you're a student, let yourself be heard in the segments' comments, in recorded video comments and live on air. If you're not, I hope you'll give us the "college try" and participate anyway. Get a taste of the spirit of inquiry and hope for discovery that's driving innovation and already improving the country's condition.
