With graduation quickly approaching, there are some questions that must be answered about college. Where am I going to college? Will I live in the dorms? Who will I room with? As a senior, I have firsthand experience with these questions. They are not always easily answered, but once they are, your college life will be made so much easier.

The most important piece of information that one must know after graduation is where they are going to college. Colleges are almost like personalities. One must choose a college that best meshes with their own personality or preferences. If a person wants to go to a very liberal college, the University of Texas is a good college for them. Or if a student likes tradition, Texas A&M in College Station would be a good choice for them. In the end, no matter what college a person chooses, they will receive a good education, and that is the most important aspect.

If a student plans to live in a dorm, finding a roommate is important. The whole ordeal of finding a roommate can be a lengthy process. Make sure that when you fill out your roommate questionnaire, you are completely honest. That way you are assured a roommate that fits your style completely. A major question that future college students have to ask themselves is, “Should I live with a friend from high school?” Most experts say no. With a roommate from your previous high school it may be harder to feel that you can explore new things. Also, living with a friend from high school can strain the relationship. Having to live together is very different from just hanging out. Instead of living with your friend, I would recommend that you still keep in touch with your friends, but make sure you develop your own circle of new friends, because chances are these will be the friends that you will have the rest of your life.

College is one of the most exciting times in a young person’s life. To make sure that a person is ready for the entire experience, have a plan of action and stick to it. And in the end just remember to enjoy college.
