How do students find a school that's the right fit for them?
If you are the first in your family to attend college, the task of finding the right school may seem challenging. Remember, you are not looking for the one perfect school; this isn’t Cinderella’s glass slipper! You are looking for one of many schools nationwide that will meet your needs. Begin by making a list of what you want or need in a college. List academic, social, financial, and geographical factors. Seek input from family, friends, teachers, community members, and counselors. Next you will want to research online, with college guidebooks, and when you narrow your choices, with campus visits.
