The College Search

  • Finding a college after high school can often be long, tedious process. Did you know there are almost 4,000 colleges and universities out there? How am I supposed to research all of them? Who has time for all of that?? NO ONE! 


    One way to narrow down your options is to develop a criterion and determine what it is that you're looking for in a school. Here are some steps to help get you started:

    • Research colleges in Kansas by the career/major you want.
    • Look at the cost of attendance and keep in mind what you can afford to pay out of pocket for school.

    • What size school will you feel comfortable at? Do you want to be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond, so to speak. 
    • What else do you want from your college experience? Think athletics, clubs, study abroad opportunities, internships, etc.
