Explore Colleges


Factors to consider when exploring colleges!

1. Large School or Small School? Big fish in a little pond, or little fish in a big pond? What environment will you thrive in!

2. Location, Location, Location! If you hate the snow, it is not recommended that you apply to a school where it snows half the year. Remember, you will be living there for four years!

3. Majors! Do they have the major you want to study? If you are not sure yet, do they have a variety of majors to choose from?

4. Campus Life! Housing options, clubs, activities, athletics, etc. Do they have what you are looking for?

5. Financial Aid and Scholarship Opportunities! Check the college's "Financial Aid" website to see where you can get free money!

6. Graduation and Retention rates! Do most students graduate in four years?

7. Admission rates! How hard is it to get into the school? Check out the average GPA of the current freshmen class and other information provided by the college.
