Last Saturday was a COLD end-of-March day. I had been hoping for warmer weather… but I have to say it really didn’t matter because it was so fantastic to be on campus and meeting prospective students and their parents. I love the feel of Clark University-though that’s really not what I want to talk with you about… I want to ask seniors* who are about to make decisions about where they want to spend the next four years…
- How will you decide?
- What’s important to you?
- What are you looking and listening for on campuses as you visit-whether it’s for the first time or the last time-before you make your decision? (Or, what are you looking for on the colleges’ websites and in conversations with current students and alumni?)
You have some time to make a decision. I’d like to suggest that you choose with your head and your heart. Reflect on who you are: what you need and want in an environment so that you are both comfortable and challenged to do your best work and have a great time! Good luck!
* These are great questions for juniors too, as you begin visiting campuses.
