Deb's Tip:
Look for three things in your college search:

  1. A major/program that encompasses something you love to do; you’ll look forward to work every day and get paid for what you enjoy.
  2. Try not to graduate with a mountain of debt and make sure job openings in your field are available; this will allow you to begin your independent life in an apartment, with a car, enjoying a vacation, etc.
  3. Find a campus where you feel comfortable; when you visit a college, you’ll get a sense of fitting in.
