Chalk Talk: How to Choose a College
There are many factors that go into making the decision about where you will attend college. Cost is a major factor, but so are the distance from home, the kinds of academic programs offered, and the social life experiences available on campus. To narrow down your choices, try making a pros and cons list. Doing so will help you visualize which schools have the most to offer and which ones you can cross off your short list. Also think about visiting each school, and if need be, visit a second time. Oftentimes a campus visit and tour of the school’s facilities will help you get a feel for what the experience will be like on campus. Also be sure to talk to faculty members in the department in which you will be majoring. Having a good rapport with professors in your area of emphasis can make your decisions between schools very clear-cut.
