Myths about attending college

Don't believe the myths about attending college and miss out on a great opportunity! What are those myths?

  1. Only students with good grades go to college: Yes, good grades and test scores help when applying to college. But admissions staff will also look at your background, community involvement, and character.
  2. College will just be more of high school: College is different. You are expected to be an adult and you are treated as an adult. That means more independence, more responsibility, and a different type of schedule.
  3. I can't go to college because I don't know what I want to do: Most students decide after their first two years of college. Even then, you don't have to be in one job the rest of your life. You can decide on a career during college and change it as life changes.
  4. I need a job as soon as I graduate: We understand the finances and that you might need that job. However, you could work part time in college, and odds are that you will be paid more after you graduate.

Where do you start? Start by talking with local colleges and they will help you with financial aid, deciding on a major, or deciding where to attend. The key is to start now.
