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”

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.
