Yasemin’s Answer

Hi Daniela! Some important things are:
-tuition (cost is probably the largest factor and the type of aid received can help in making you more decisive about your college choice)
-connections before and after graduating for your career choice and internships
-campus size (some individuals do like big campuses but some prefer small; some campuses can be so large that you have to take a shuttle from class to class which can be difficult at times and not preferred for some)
-extracurriculars/activities (how involved is the campus, is there significant volunteer work or activities you like to do)
-dorms vs commuter life (commuting was big at my campus and there was even a commuter's lounge)
-class size and professor interactions (having professors who are interactive with students and with limited class sizes can be beneficial; some classes like gen. eds. are large but others can be more personal like your major)
-where the college is (it also matters to make sure that you are in a college setting where shopping and accessibility to certain things is feasible, especially if you dorm and are on your own.

I hope this helps!
Best of luck!

Tsion’s Answer

You should consider if the college;
1. Offers the major you want to focus in and also offers variety of courses within that major
2. Offers scholarship or grants
3. Offers variety of organization and leadership opportunities for you to take part in
4. Might be too soon to think about but you should also think what and how much the college offers regarding post-undergrad programs like Masters for your major
5. Distance


Good Luck!

What are important things to look into for college?

1) What about that college stands out to you?
2) Are you choosing a college you want or someone else wants for you?
3) Does it fit your financial situation?
4) Do they have clubs that fit your interest?
5) Do they have programs in your field that you go do work study while you are in your major?
6) Does the location have near by places within walking distance for you to go and unwind and reset your mind, i.e, park, coffee shop and etc.

Some questions to consider include:
