My Best College Search Process Tip:

Use your values and desired educational and co-curricular interests to guide your search and look for colleges and universities that align. Keep an open mind when exploring colleges and ask a lot of questions. Participate in visit opportunities and pre-college programs, when possible, to better acclimate yourself with their community and resources. If you start to feel overwhelmed or unsure during the process, remember to give yourself grace: you got this!
