UPchicago.com Editorial Policy

Content, including reviews and recommendations, on UPchicago is chosen by our very good-looking staff of writers and editors, not our equally good-looking advertisers.

But websites can’t run on good looks alone. (Though this one comes close…) So, we will occasionally publish features sponsored by companies that we love. We’ll never publish content we don’t 100% stand behind, and we’ll never take money from a company we don’t support, trust and feel confident in recommending to you guys. Pinky swear. Oh, and any sponsored content well always be clearly labeled as such.

We encourage you to check out our sponsors and advertisers because, well, they’re pretty kickass. I mean, you wouldn’t expect us to work with a bunch of joe schmoes would you?

Also, keep an eye out for this little ditty:

*Disclaimer: The opinions contained in this article are those of the author, and not of UPchicago.com.

It’s the truth.
