Janet Marthers, co-author of Follow Your Interests to Find the Right College, understands that choosing a college can be tough because there are so many options. Some high school students know what they want in a college and know what college they are going to attend. But some students are undecided about what they want to study, which makes choosing a college more difficult.

For those undecided high school students, Marthers suggests that they look at liberal arts colleges, which will allow them to develop their reading and writing skills while still exploring what they want to study. To help narrow down their search, undecided students should also look to the extracurricular activities, the location of the school, and the cost of attendance.

The most important thing for undecided students to do when it comes to choosing a school is to visit the campus. Putting yourself in the space where you may one day be taking classes can help you identify want you do or don't want from a college.
