'America's Next Top Model': Meet the 'College Edition' contestants

tyra-banks-top-model-college.jpgWomen from schools ranging from a cosmetics institute to Harvard Divinity School will be competing on "America's Next Top Model" this season.

The "College Edition" of The CW's long-running reality show debuts Aug. 24, and it will feature new judges ( Kelly Cutrone and Rob Evans), a new creative consultant ( Johnny Wujek) and fan voting that will help determine who stays and who goes each week. And given the college theme, probably at least one photo shoot set in a library and Tyra Banks wearing glasses a lot.
