MAKE SURE THAT THE UNIVERSITY YOU ARE ATTENDING HAS EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IN TERMS OF YOUR CAREER PATH. MAKE SURE THAT YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SPECIAL PROGRAMS AT THE UNIVERSITY AND DO YOUR RESEARCH. THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE, YOU JSUT HAVE TO LOOK. NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS THAN YOU DESERVE.
I think the best way for a student to choose the right college is not to get influenced by anyone else. First you should decide which subject best interest you even though your unsure of what you want to do for your future. With that in mind you can choose a college that specializes in that subject. You won't have to feel obligated to that specific subject because you have the freedom to take other classes and find what major or subject suits you best. Just remember find something you love and you'll have a greater appreciation for living life. Working with other students is what I find every influential and a great experience. It's a way to make new friends and makes grueling hours of studying more inviting than studying alone.
To the parents:
Support your children. They will need time to adjust. They need time to find themselves, to explore. They may change majors, drop long held dreams. Encourage them if you think the changes are the result of giving up, but if they have given it thought and are calm and rational, let them be. Its their life; you are not living vicariously through them. Challenge them, keep them going, trying to be the best. But let them know its ok if their not. And don't panic if they forget to call one day. They are busy. Let them go.
To the students:
Make friends. The first month of school is the most important for networking. Everyone is new too, even upperclassmen are taking different classes than before and might not have friends in that class. Talk to them. Go out to dinner. Go to the movies. Go. Later you can be a homebody; that first month go out.
Study. I know this seems contracdictory to the above, but its not. In fact balancing school and fun is the major lesson of college. Study in between classes. Use that hour break to catch up on reading.
