What are you looking for in a college?

One of the hardest aspects of choosing a college is to know what qualities to value most in your decision.  There are many points on which to compare institutions. Some of the more obvious, such as size, academic offerings, cost and distance from home are reasonable starting points. Once again, the key to beginning is in taking a careful look at yourself and matching your strengths/desires to the characteristics of a college.  This is an area in which working with your counselor may be very helpful.  If you can describe the institution you are seeking in general terms, your counselor will be able to refer you to colleges that best fit that description.
