Hello! It's great that you're starting to think about college fit at this stage. To find a college that aligns with your personality and interests, consider the following factors: 1. Academic programs: Make sure the college offers majors and courses that you're interested in. 2. Campus size: Reflect on whether you prefer a small, intimate setting or a larger, more bustling environment. 3. Location: Think about your preference for an urban, suburban, or rural setting, and consider how far from home you'd like to be. 4. Extracurricular activities: Research clubs, organizations, and sports teams to see if they match your interests. 5. Campus culture: Get a feel for the social scene and student body by visiting the campus, attending events, or talking to current students. 6. Financial aid: Investigate the available scholarships and financial aid options to make sure you can afford the college. Good luck with your search, and I hope you find the perfect college for you!
