For most high school seniors, college means independence and the beginning of adulthood. Those of influence in our lives cement the idea that those college years spent in a tiny dorm and eating cafeteria food 24/7 will be the best of our lives (which is absolutely terrifying), as well as determine the paths that we will take later in life. Many like to think that the college that you go to won’t matter in the end, but really, the school we choose has a much more substantial effect than we are comfortable with. College is where people find their lifelong friends, future employers, possible spouses, themselves, and ultimately crippling debt.
