  • Student Population – Larger colleges and universities may have a greater diversity of students regarding ethnic, social and financial backgrounds.
  • Majors and Requirements – If a student has chosen a career path then the college should be one that will prepare him for that particular field. If major is undeclared at present, choose a school with many options.
