College is a huge milestone! And it's so much more than just the education (don't tell your parents we said that!) It's going to be your home-away-from-home for four years, and you need to LOVE it. The information on this page will help you navigate the college application process, and (as always) we're here to help!
THREE QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF:
1. What major am I interested in? 2. Do I want a big or small school? 3. How far do I want to be from home?
