  • What's the right match? The kind of college you choose to attend should reflect your goals and your personality. Whether you choose a public, private, community, technical, trade, or even online college, make sure it's the best match for you.
  • Big or small? Do you attend a big university with a greater choice of studies and social activities, but also larger lecture classes? Or would you like fewer choices but more personal attention and a greater chance to stand out? You decide.
  • Home or Away? Attending a local college versus boarding out of state - what's better? It depends. For some, residence hall life is an important part of the college experience - but commuting from home is less expensive.
  • Which major works? Figuring our what you like doing most, plus what you're best at, can point to the careers you should consider - and what majors will help you reach your career goal.
  • Why extras matter. Getting into extracurricular activities outside of class - band, science club, the school newspaper, or drama—or even volunteering at local organizations helps you discover what your real interests are - and where you’re heading.
