The College Search Process

There are many steps to the college search process, and each person takes his or her own unique path on this journey.  To help you get started, here are some excellent web resources for all of the steps in this exciting time.

Beginning to Explore
The most frequent question college-bound students are asked is, "What do you want to do with your life?"   Look here to browse, play, enjoy, and learn a little more about what you can do with your life.

Searching for Colleges
Want to know if a particular college requires that you take physics?  Want to find out if a school has club water polo?  These sites are the places to begin.

Visiting Your College Choices
How do you set up a college admissions tour?  What if you can't travel to the campus itself?  Answer all of your questions here.
