Carol’s Answer

When looking into colleges, there are a number of different factors to consider and the answers might be different for each candidate. First, does the college offer the major you are interested in? Second, are you able to afford the cost associated with attending that college (many scholarships, grants, loans, etc are offered for certain schools/majors). Third, is this school in a desired location (close/far from family depending on your preference, what is the weather like and what is the culture like, etc.). Lastly, what are the school metrics (acceptance %, graduation %, tenure, etc.). These are 4 major factors in choosing a school. If you get a chance to do college visit or college fairs, that is also a great way to help you determine what school might be a right fit for you.

On a personal note, I graduated from Florida A&M University (Go Rattlers!) and it was life changing! I totally recommend to anyone to consider an HBCU for the experience and excellence.

Terri’s Answer

You also want to consider the type of environment you are looking for in a college. After all, you’ll be living there for four years! Some students want a large college that offers just about anything for anyone. Others want to be in a small setting where professors all know who they are, and they feel like there is a small community feel.

Make sure that the school offers clubs or organizations that are of interest to you. School is about more than just taking classes, and engaged students tend to enjoy their experience more (and do better academically).

As you make your decision, it helps to visit schools. But if you can’t do that, most schools have a virtual tour. And whether you visit campus or not, ask to be connected with a current student, and ask that student questions about what their daily life is like as a student.
