Chalk Talk: Considering Colleges
Picking the right college or university is more than just choosing a name. Of course, the most important factor is the field you plan on studying. A small liberal arts college may not have the engineering program you’re looking for. Start by finding the program you want, and then consider other factors, such as the size and location of the school. Urban schools often have a lot of commuters and may not have a lot of on-campus activities, while schools in more rural areas offer more in the way of campus life. A private or smaller school may have 5,000 or fewer students, while a larger state school may have well over 30,000. What about sports teams? A Big 10 school will have a far different collegiate atmosphere than a smaller liberal arts school. If you get into a school and realize the size or location is not what you were expecting and you feel overwhelmed (or underwhelmed), talk to your Resident Advisor (RA) or admissions counselor immediately.
