Here are some things you should consider when you’re choosing a college. Location Where do you want to go to college? Do you want to attend a college close to home? In your home state? Where it’s warm, or where there’s snow? Would you like to be in a big city, or would you rather go to college in a small town, and be closer to nature? Most students go to a public college in the state where they live. This is because it usually costs less to go to a public college in your home state. For example, it costs a student living in Texas more to go to a college in Ohio than it costs a student living in Ohio. Going to college in your home state also makes it easier to get home for holidays and vacations. In order to save money, some students go to a college that’s close enough for them to commute (drive back and forth). Students who live at home and commute can save a lot of money on living expenses.
