One of the definitive parts of your college decision is the place. Where a college or university is located, especially as a traditional student living residentially, is so key to ensure you have a positive experience. You will want to not only consider which academic major to pursue and the key co-curricular programs you will spend your additional time on, but also what the community beyond the campus will offer you during your undergraduate experience. As a college admission officer with a background at residential, liberal arts colleges, I know this is one of the primary features we try to embed in the story of the college. We recognize the role of location in finding your college fit.
