Chalk Talk: Tips for Choosing a College
There are all kinds of things college-bound students should do to help them find the school for them. Campus tours, talking with admissions counselors and professors, and examining the financial aid options available are all common activities that can help students make their final decision. Likewise, students should spend some time on each campus on their own. Stepping away from the campus tour to explore the campus can give students an even better idea of what school life is like. Talking to alumni of the institution is another great way to get some insight into what the school is like. From activities to participate in to what professors to take, alumni have a little more perspective than do current students. These alternative strategies could very well help students make their final decision.
