Views on College

More jobs now require a college education. It's never too early to start looking around for a college. You shouldn't let money stop you from going wherever you want to go. You need to find out what classes are required in the college you want to attend. It's going to be much more expensive than you ever realized. Research different colleges online to gain information. Make sure the academic requirements line up with your talents. Attend college fairs. Think about going to junior college for two years to save money and get required courses out of the way. Visit colleges to see if this is the place you want to attend. Compare location, size, cost and academic interests. Contact students attending colleges and ask questions. Apply for available scholarships early. If college costs are an issue, meet with a financial aid officer. Make multiple stops at several colleges, including a campus tour at each.
