Advice I wish someone had shared with me when choosing a college or considering to transfer

Always follow your heart and choose the college that you love most even if it does mean going separate ways from some of your closest high school friends.  College is an opportunity to meet new friends and develop life-long relationships!  As you are visiting college campuses, you will know when you have found the perfect fit because it will truly feel like home.
