Follow your heart..... if you believe in a higher power, ask and pray for a higher educational environment which will help you to expand on all levels, so that you become a blessing to others....with that said, or written, lol,......

know who you are, or at the very least, align your thoughts to who you want to become????

know where you are presently, in all levels.....????

know own where you want or hope, faithfully need to go, not only to help self, just as importantly, to assist others...???

god bless....🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

I can't stress enough how important it is to visit the campus of every school that you are interested in. Some will give you a feeling that you're meant to be there... and some will not. You need to get a sense of what the school has to offer before making your decision. Also, be sure to check out what fields the school specializes in. Unless you are absolutely sure of your career path (which most high school students are not), try to find a school with many options/specialties. This will allow you to switch freely between majors if necessary. Don't discount the weather/climate of the region you are moving to. This can have a major impact on your mood and your thoughts about the school.

Make a list of what's important to you: location (close to home or distant); small vs big environment; professor/student ratio; class size; curriculum and field of studies offered; student organizations and activities; internship and student work opportunities; etc. Look for colleges/universities that fit your criteria. Then set up campus visits that include sitting in on a class; being paired with a student to show you around and talk about what they like about the school. Private schools may come with higher tuition, but they often times offer much more generous scholarships that can make them affordable. Best of luck in your search.
