Explore Universities
 

With thousands of universities and colleges around the United States, it is easy to get overwhelmed.

Here are some things you might want to consider:

  • Do you want to commute to campus from home or do you want to move out of your city, even state for school?

  • What schools have strong programs in your potential major or area of study?

  • What does the cultural diversity look like at the school? Do you want to attend a HSI (Hispanic serving institution where at least 25% of students are Hispanic), a HBCU (historically Black College & University) or would you be comfortable at a PWI (predominately white institution) ?

  • What does financial aid look like at that school?

Below are some resources to begin exploring different universities !
