decisionAttention high schoolers: picking the right college for you is a huge decision, and it’s never too early to start narrowing down your choices.

There are roughly 4,300 colleges in the U.S., so it’s no surprise that college-bound students struggle to find a place to receive higher education.

I started to miss the walls of my old high school, and I couldn’t seem to shake the crowded college dining hall and parking lot. It wasn’t long before I decided to spend the weekend at my parents’ house.

It’s normal for college students to feel homesick, but it’s important that you learn to cope. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself skipping class and constantly griping to your roommate about how much you hate the campus. Read the rest of this entry »
