AN ARTIST'S FEET

Kick up spring with artistic style ... on your feet. New York-based artist Keren Richter teamed with Vans shoes last fall, and she's teaming up with Vans again.

Her Vans shoes, under the collection name "Wellesley," are high-tops and fit right in with the resurgence of '80s style. Two of the shoes feature the same illustration, but one has a purple and aqua color scheme with black accents; the other has brown accents over a pink and yellow-themed illustration. There's another more vibrant, '80s throwback style, which has black accents and neon colors if you're really looking to make a statement. Find the shoes for $54.95 at Zappos.com.

COLLEGE CALLING

Anyone stressing about the college search may want to turn to the Web site, www.CampusExplorer.com. Here you can narrow your college search by entering specific preferences and personal information to find a school that is suitable to your tastes. Enter information on your possible major, location, type of school (and even religion or setting) and a list of colleges -- including annual cost to attend -- will be created based on these requests. To further narrow the search, you can figure out your chance of admission depending on SAT scores, extracurricular activities, GPA and high school course difficulty (with color-coded buttons on whether the given school is a "reach" or a safety school). With information about scholarships, financial aid and academics, this Web site is sure to assist anyone who is looking for college help.
