Hi Alondra,

First you would want to decide what career/industry you want to be in. This will help you research degree programs related to your field and the schools where they are located. Second, make a list of those schools and go online to review them. Take virtual tours if available. Contact program advisors with specific questions. Narrow your choices down to 2 or 3 schools. Third, if possible, try to physically visit your top 3 schools in person.

Keep in mind there are other factors to consider as well such as the cost of tuition. Will you be paying In-state or Out-of-state tuition. How will you pay for college? Are there scholarships available? Or will you use financial aid or student loans. Are community or junior colleges an option?

This is a big decision so give yourself plenty of time to conduct proper research. You can start researching as soon as Sophomore year. Good Luck!

Some other things to consider would be school size and location - are you looking for a big school, or a small one? In a city, or a more rural area? Public or private? The environment you are in can have a big impact on your experience, so it is worth keeping in mind.
