Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

Find a university that best fits “YOU!” Make a list of important qualities including majors, class size, and the type of environment you are looking for and start from there. In addition, I believe visiting many different institutions is extremely beneficial. I would suggest choosing a school that cultivates growth for the mind, body, and spirit. I chose Concordia University because it provided me with a wonderful education, endless opportunities and ways to thrive.

Take your time finding the right school for you. There are plenty of them out there! Find what you really value, whether academic, athletics, or extracurricular activities and then the right size, small school or large school, and then last but not least, listen to where God is leading you and then go there, and hopefully that school is CUAA!

Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

Figure out a few characteristics that are deal breakers, like size, location, majors, school type, or something else that is important to you. Once you have narrowed down what is important, go visit schools that fit your criteria. Talk to people that have been a part of the school, see what people who go to the school have to say. Make sure you enjoy being at the school and with the people within the campus community.

Advice for Students Searching for the “Perfect Fit”

When searching for the right fit for you it is important that you not only look at one aspect of the college or university. Look at all aspects so that when you start your education you can have a lifestyle that you want and be surrounded by a place that is going to support you in everything you do. You must also most importantly pick a college or university that is right for YOU, not for anyone else, it is YOUR education and you have to make sure you are going to an institution that fits YOU!

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.
