I remember around the spring time of my senior year of high school I was figuring out where I wanted to go to college and what was important to me in a school.  I had already been through the process of visiting campuses twice because I have two older brothers.  So, I had seen countless schools and it was time to really …

College decision time is one of the most stressful times in a high schooler’s life. So many great options, so many places to potentially go. For me however, the decision was easy.
