Hey Sarah,

I currently attend Arizona State University as a business student. ASU has made great strides in becoming a respected university and the W.P. Carey School of Business is one of the highest rated in the country. ASU can provide you a fairly comprehensive overview of business and I know we have entrepreneurial classes that would be perfect. A good friend of mine is studying to be a teacher and he enjoys the teaching college we have here.
This was helpful and I appreciate the recommendation. I've loved traveling my entire life and I've been trying to decide if I want to stay in my state or travel a bit- this helps a lot thank you. Sarah I. Translate

Hey Sarah,
If you are looking for a small private school out of state, I would recommend looking at Susquehanna University (I am a current junior). It is 2300 in the middle of Pennsylvania (1 hour from Harrisburg, 1 1/2 hours from Pennsylvania State University (Penn State Main Campus) our business school is AACSB accredited which means it is one of the top business schools in the country along with having a great education department.
If you are looking for a state school that is not in Ohio I would recommend West Chester University of Pennsylvania. They are known for being an education school and in the last few years they built a new building to house the business department.
I would utilize Naviance or Google as much as you can to find the right schools for you. I would say that you should try too figure out what size school you are looking for and whether you want to stay in sate or go out of state for school.

Your question sounds realistic as far as having a backup plan at your age. In that vain, you are already 'steps' ahead. Given that, also consider what college you can afford. State universities offer teaching degrees and you could minor in business to satisfy your entrepreneurial spirit. As part of your college application process, I would suggest you also interview some dance studio owners. I am sure they would love to discuss their journey, to assist with your own. Glad you are leaping into additional education; learning is life-long.
As to Ohio, my family grew up in New England but my sister LOVES Columbus.
All the best,

Donna L. recommends the following next steps:

  • Look at state universites.
  • Visit campuses to determine what suits your personality versus your friends.
  • Interview dance studio owners.
  • Visit geographical areas of interest.
  • Set short and long-term goals. Measure against them periodically.
