  • Strength of the departments in your major field of interest
  • Entrance requirements
  • Co-ed, all men, all women
  • Size of the student body
  • Student-faculty ratio (number of students for each teacher)
  • Geographic location of college
  • Religious affiliation
  • Campus facilities (housing availability, library size, laboratory)
  • Urban/rural setting
  • Athletic programs
  • R.O.T.C. availability
  • Social opportunities
  • Cost to attend
  • Financial aid availability
  • Travel costs
Use the resources found in the guidance office, the individual college catalogs and computer databases (Discover and those available on the World Wide Web) to assist you in identifying the colleges that suit your individual circumstances. Don't forget the FIRST HAND INFORMATION that the college representatives can provide attend the Broward National College Fair  and meet with the college representatives as they visit your high school.
