How did your college experience help shape who you are?

While attending college, I found my voice; I learned I could ask questions and speak my opinions. I gained confidence and realized that my goals were achievable. College is where you grow and mature, both academically and as a person.

What advice do you have for students beginning their college search?

Don’t worry if your interests change. Try to narrow down your choices by the end of your junior year. Consider how each school fits your passions, and visit schools again, if you can. Ask as many questions as you’d like to feel comfortable with the school you choose.
