As the 2017 school year comes to an end seniors are preparing for the move to college. To help juniors and underclassmen make a well thought out decision I asked someone about why and how they chose their college. I interviewed senior Kylie Roach about how she chose Augustana University as her college. When I asked her about what factors she looked for in a college she said “campus size and location, student to faculty ratio, job placement rates, and clubs and organizations.” She committed to Augustana University because “the close-knit community, since its a small campus the students get to know their classmates and professors very well and its easy to be involved in campus activities.” Going on a college visit is a great way to get a feel for the campus life and see whether it is the right fit for you. Visiting different types of college allows you to decide what you are looking for in the next few years of your life. Determine if a bigger or smaller class size is good for you, check out the different studying areas, and see what extracurricular activities are available to students. Kylie hasn’t decided on her major yet but she is excited to be able to be independent, meet different people, and experience new things at college.
