A good thesaurus for college students is Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus, notes the Browning Library at Dixie State University. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus is available in print form and online.
Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Thesaurus makes it easy to find words by allowing students to look them up alphabetically. As of July 2015, the thesaurus provides more than 340,000 synonyms, antonyms, related words, idioms and contrasted words. Words are placed in context to show students how they should be used.
Merriam-Webster's website allows students to search for the definitions, synonyms, antonyms and Spanish translations of words. Students can also view the word of the day and play games to test their vocabulary skills.
