Question submission: I have just begun the college searching process. How do I find the right college for me?
The search to find the right school for you may seem like a daunting task, but it is important to remember that in the end, you should go to the school that feels right for you. Obviously, cost is a major factor, but here are a few other important questions to ask yourself in order to narrow down your options.
- Does the college have a program of interest for you? If you already know what you want your major to be, then it is important that the schools you are looking at offer your desired major. If you are going into college undeclared, it is best to go to a school with a wide variety of programs so you can test different options and find what works for you.
- Big school or small school? Do you want a school with a large student body, or do you prefer a smaller school? This all depends on where you would feel most comfortable.
- Close school or far school? Are you planning on getting as far away from Delaware as possible, or do you want to stay relatively close to home? Some people are more comfortable being close to home where they can go home if they need to. Other people want to go further from home in order to gain a stronger sense of independence and freedom.
- Are sports important? Do you want to attend a school with good athletic teams, or are sports not an important factor for you? Whether you are an athlete or a spectator, this is something you should consider when looking at schools.
Good luck to everyone on their college search journey, we know that everyone here is going to go on to do incredible things.
