How do I choose the right college?

Choosing the right college for you is important. Not only does each career path require a unique kind of degree, some require specific majors. Plus, you’ll want to consider things like how much independence you want. Some colleges are closer to your home — others are farther away. Many colleges offer Greek organizations like fraternities and sororities. Do you want the experience of a big athletic department? Maybe you are looking to continue your high school athletic career, or you enjoy cheering at sporting events. How much do you want to spend on your degree?

You should visit the colleges you’re interested in to see how you like them. You can take a tour of the campus, talk to advisors and current students, and get a feel for the environment overall. Ask a professor if you can sit in on a class, or find a group of students to talk to about their experience there.
