College- Location Does Matter
We often hear that the school you go to should be the most important factor in choosing a college or university to attend. However, the school itself is not the only determinant. The location of the university you wish to attend plays a HUGE role in choosing your higher education.
When it comes to higher learning in Miami, most people view the University of Miami as the best choice that anyone can make for their education. With its high rank, beloved football team, and academically prestigious status, UM would appear to be the best choice for many students who live in Miami.
Nevertheless, because this is Miami, students should learn to embark in higher education not solely because the school is well known and liked, but because they truly have a desire to further their education and their experiences.
Miami offers an abundance amount of opportunities when it comes to the various recreational activities you are allowed to do, nightlife, and internship and well as career opportunities. Yet, the environment of Miami may not be for everyone. For students who are use to a quaint, quite, and small towns, attending school in this city may become an eye opener for them to how different places are when you are the one living in it. Miami may seem like an upbeat, dream city for most people but it may be surprisingly different from what people expect.
In closing, before making a decision on where to go to school, learn about the environment, social life, and people who live in that town or city. Attending a university that is away from home is making a big change and difference in your life. It is taking a step towards your future goals and aspirations. So to make sure that the university as well as the city you will live in will direct you towards your chosen path, learn more about their location, people, and the opportunities they offer. Because when you go to college, you go to your new home.
