Normally, a college freshman, all fresh from high school, is anxious to find a good school and an appropriate degree.
It is then helpful that you identify the potential schools where you can possibly go to and check their offerings. You have to check their services and facilities as well, not to mention, accessibility and school fees. Having considered all these can make your enrolment easier and more motivating. Your high school buddies may have similar interest on your school. This can be more helpful. But, in most occasion, you are a total stranger to the place and to everyone. Make friends and contacts then. This can make your stay in your new school less compelling and boring.
Enrolment is physically draining. It will do you good, if you check first enrolment flowcharts and school grounds for easy traffic and direction.
Remember, school is fun if we choose it to be. So, find the most suitable school first, and make your stay there remarkable and productive.
