Introducing The Root U!

The Root U is a new social media platform for college students and young professionals.


A new school year is upon us, and whether you're headed back to school this fall or have just graduated, you should have access to all the news that matters to you the most.

The Root U is a fresh extension of The Root that keeps busy college students and budding young professionals ahead of what's happening in the world. Check The Root U on Twitter for regular updates on campus news, Greek life, entertainment, politics, black culture and more. Follow us on Twitter and stay tuned for exciting contests and promotions.

Stay sharp. Stay informed. Follow @TheRootU!  

The Root encourages respectful debate and dialogue in our commenting community. To improve the commenting experience for all our readers we will be experimenting with some new formats over the next few weeks. During this transition period the comments section will be unavailable to users.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your continued support of The Root.

While we are experimenting, please feel free to leave feedback below about your past experiences commenting at The Root.
