Should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay or should I go?

Senior year: the year you might have been looking forward to but might not be quite as expected. As the world keeps adjusting to the demands of the ongoing pandemic lots of students can feel swallowed by all of the responsibilities they are taking on.  Whether deciding what colleges to apply to and what to major in these decisions can put lots of stress on our lives. Talking with your parents, friends or a trusted adult is always a good idea to get their ideas on what they think is best for you, however, it is ultimately your decision. 

When deciding for colleges it’s important to keep a few things in mind such as

  • How far from home do you want to go
  • What size of school would you be comfortable in 
  • What is the cost of schools you are looking into 
  • Would you be able to get different scholarships at some schools 
  • What is the student life like at the schools you are looking into 
  • Does the university have a safe campus 
  • What do you want from your college experience 
  • Does the school really prepare you for your future career
