What is the purpose of college?
Why should someone go to college?
Step 1: College Shopping
Be sure to take advantage of opportunities to research colleges deeply and figure out things about them that you cannot find by Googling – like “How does it feel to be on campus?” “What is the ‘vibe’ of the college?”.
Fly-In Programs are great ways to get this information. These programs take place in the fall, and offer the opportunity to travel to campus, stay overnight or for a weekend, attend classes, and speak with students and faculty – and all of this is typically free for high school students.
