As the third quarter has started, so has the start to finding the perfect college for the junior class. Finding the college that fits you can be hard. There are a many resources to help you find what matches you best. Talking to your guidance counselor is one of the best resources available for you to use. They are always in school and are able to talk if you set up an appointment. Your guidance counselor also has a good idea of what you want to do. They can recommend colleges that would fit what you want to do, or is good to go to for your major.

Another resource available to you is your college school board. This website can be easily accessed through Edline. The website is able to narrow down colleges to location, majors, prices, and much more. The website also has a helpful tool that shows majors that you may want to study based on your interests. You can also find jobs that would suit you based on your interests.

Touring a college is also a very good thing to do if you are interested in it. Many people are interested in colleges but have only seen it through pictures. Going to it in person gives you an idea of how the atmosphere is and may show you if you like it or if it isn’t what you thought. The school will give you an excused absence also if you go to visit colleges.
