Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

My advice for prospective students is to not only visit and tour a college campus, but do an overnight visit as well. That way you get a 360 degree feel for the dynamic of the campus and a firsthand experience of what life would be like as a full time student.

Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

When finding the perfect fit, it is essential to look at where you see yourself fitting in at the university. When gathering information and going on a visit, be analytical and see if you can envision yourself spending 4 years at a particular university. I found that with CUAA and I believe you will too!

Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

JC Penney has an ad campaign that says “When it fits, you feel it”. I don’t know what that has to do with trying on pants, but you’ll feel right at home at CUAA when you come for your visit. Take everything into account when searching for the right fit, be that academic, extra-curricular, or even intangible things. You’ll feel it when you find that you fit at CUAA!

Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

Transfer students be sure to talk with the advisors, find out how long your path to graduation is. You have already worked so hard you want to ensure your current credits will transfer before deciding on the school. And also be sure to visit any university you are thinking about studying and go back more than once if needed. Along with a great education you want to ensure you can see yourself thriving as a person!

Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

Talk with the people in your life who know "the real you." Figure out, with their help, what type of environment in which you’re most likely to thrive and find purpose. Don’t necessarily choose what is most comfortable, familiar, or easy if that option isn’t going to really challenge you to become a better person. Work your hardest to consider all the factors of your college experience that are important to you, and commit the entire process to continuous prayer. Pray that you’ll hear God’s wisdom over worldly wisdom, and remember that He’s always at work in the big and small things of life.

Then, once you’ve arrived at your school, invest your time and effort into the experience to make it a great one. No college is perfect, but your experience and satisfaction depend greatly upon your perspective and how much you’re willing to put in to it.
