    As doors close on the first chapter of your educational journey, let the new doors open. Often times, new doors can appear to be large and sometimes heavy. You may even fear what is on the other side. But choosing a college that is right for you doesn’t have to be over whelming. 

    Before looking at colleges think about what interests you. Once this has been determined, look for colleges that will help you explore your interest.

    The best time to tour colleges is when classes are in session, this will give you the best feel of the campus. During the tour observe what is going on at the campus. Notice how the Instructors and students interact.

    Other questions that may help you make an informed decision,

    ·     What makes your college standout from other colleges in the area?

    ·     What is the length and schedule of the program?

    ·     How accessible and helpful are the Instructors?

    ·     What do I need to be successful at your college?

    ·     Are there scholarship opportunities available?

    ·     Do you help complete FAFSA? 

    ·     What is the application process?

    ·     Do you help with job placement after graduation?

    However, the most important question, what is going to make you the happiest? You are the one attending college not your family, not your friends.
