The Perfect Fit: Finding The Best College for You
Imagine it. From across the store you spot the best looking pair of shoes you’ve ever seen. Since they’re the last pair left on the shelf, you dash over to grab them. But you quickly realize there’s a problem – they’re two sizes too small. After lots of toe wiggling and shoe tugging, you’re faced with a sad reality.
They’re just not the right fit for you!
A college search is the same way. You can’t make a perfect fit out of a college that doesn’t meet your needs.
Finding the right fit is important, because a college that meets your needs gives you the greatest chance of successfully completing your programme and graduating.
Luxzonica Young, a Lyford Cay Scholar at Brock University, advises students to take a hard look at their college choices before making a decision.
“I initially attended a college in West Virginia. I thought it would be great, but it didn’t take me long to realize that the lack of diversity and remote location just wasn’t for me,” said Luxzonica.
“Now, I’m at a school that I love where I have met so many different people from all over the world. And I’m confident that my programme will prepare me to return to The Bahamas and become a well-trained physiotherapist.”
So how do you weigh your college options as you embark on those college applications?
