Look beyond this
Think about...
Quality of the school
Graduation rates and job placement of the program you are interested in
Overall college experience

It’s about finding the best “fit.”
Don't forget to visit campus!!

Make a visit list of the top 3 schools
you are considering

Check out any virtual tours

get application deadlines and other admissions materials

Note any upcoming events such as open houses

The campus visit should be as comprehensive as possible

Staying over a weekend with a friend for a football game is not what we have in mind

Arrange appointments for a campus tour, with an admissions officer, with a faculty member, with a financial aid officer

Walk around on your own and talk to people and current students

Why College????
1. Every bit of education you get after high school increases the chances you'll earn good pay. Most college graduates earn a lot more money during their working years than people who stop their education at high school
2. Today, most good jobs require more than a high school diploma. Businesses want to hire people who know how to think and solve problems.
3. Education beyond high school gives you a lot of other benefits, including meeting new people, taking part in new opportunities to explore your interests and experiencing success.

The Need for Personal Responsibility
Less Time in Class and More Emphasis on Independent Study
