My College Plans

Hello everyone! With my junior year coming to a close, it’s time to start thinking about college. Soon, I’ll finallyyyy have answers for all the people asking me, “So, what are your plans for the future?”

Next year I’m planning on doing dual enrollment with Liberty Online, which I’m very excited about. I’m a big believer in dual enrollment. It knocks out some of those basic college classes so you’ll be able to save a significant amount of money in your freshman year.

I recently found out about a website called Big Future, where you can enter your preferences on location/tuition/major/etc., and it automatically generates the colleges that fit within those parameters. This will save me SO much time when I’m ready to start applying.

Here are a few of the preferences I entered into the site:

-No more than 200 miles from where I live.

-Arts and humanities and/or teaching certification available.

-All-women dorms.

That’s just a small sampling of the information I entered to make my college list perfectly catered to my wants and needs. Using that information, Big Future recommended these schools for me as 100% matches!

Barton College

Campbell University

North Carolina State University

North Carolina Wesleyan College

University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Piedmont International University

As you guys know, I live in North Carolina! All of the schools that were 100% matches are located here. There were others that weren’t full matches, but fit some of the requirements. I love how they feature some colleges I never knew existed so I can check them out!

All in all, Big Future + College Board has really helped narrow down my college application list. I’m so happy that I was able to work with them to bring you this post! I know it’s going to help so many of you who are in the same boat as I am.

Be sure to check out College Board on all their social media: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Also, Her Campus is having a giveaway partnering with Big Future that you should definitely check out here.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
