Choosing the right university and program of study are some
of the most important decisions young people ever make, but they are also among
the most difficult. Lack of information, pressure from parents or friends, financial
concerns, and simple confusion can be overwhelming for young people and their
families making this important life decision. But there is help out there! RIT
Croatia professors, students and enrollment specialists offer guidance and suggestions
to help make sure the college you choose is right for you.
Think about the skills and knowledge you want to develop over the next few years. Consider your strengths (what you are really good at), and how you can build on them.
Look back on your past educational experiences and be honest with yourself about what works for you. What kind of learning environments, schedules and workloads bring out the best in you? How do you want to spend hours, weeks, and months of your time and energy in the next few years?
If some aspect of your high school experience was particularly stressful or discouraging for you,don’t sign up for more years of the same problems - make sure you choose a college that offers something different!
Choose a college that will help you develop as a person, not just gain technical skills. The modern job market is changing so fast that today’s knowledge quickly becomes out of date. Today’s employers are looking for more than just technical skills; they want people who are good communicators and creative thinkers, team players with emotional intelligence, who are well organized, independent problem solvers.
Remember: you will be in college for you - not to make your parents happy, or to impress your friends. Once you get there, the responsibility of doing the work will be on you. You will do best if you truly want to be where you are and are motivated and interested in what you are doing.
Also, make sure you choose a college that offers a personal career counseling service with real people you can talk to. Look for a college that connects you with people who actually work in today’s jobs and gives you an opportunity to try various different employment experiences before you graduate.Internships during college are some of the best ways to figure out what kind of career will be right for you.
College enrollment do’s and don’ts:
With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
