College search advice: Before you start your search, think about what you are looking for and then see if the college meets your criteria. Visit, ask questions, and be aware of scholarship opportunities. See if you can picture yourself there and if it will challenge you. Finding a place that will help you grow is essential, but finding a place where you can serve is just as important. A building can only show you so much; meeting people will help you discover the core values of a college.
