Every senior experiences the college rush in November by going to college application week where you apply for at least one college. Which made some question college in general.

College seems like the craziest thing to someone that is home schooled, or amazing to go through four plus years to get a decent job to support yourself.

Back in high school there are two types of people when they are asked the question  “Where do you want to go to college?” There are a couple of responses it’s either “I’m going to go to Salt Lake Community College for my generals and then transfer to Utah State University”, or another response could be “I’m going to Dixie State University or the full 8+ years of college”.

There is another answer where a person will say “I have no idea where to go”. Both of these answers are common with high school students, there are even adults in their mid to late 30’s who haven’t gone to college because they don’t know where to go or they are not sure what to do in life.

That’s why counselors in every high school are working very hard to get every student in the school ready for college. Many of us had no idea what to do in our future, I’ll bet you anything that back in the elementary, preschool years when asked the question where do you see yourself in five years everyone said vet because it was the easiest thing to spell. As we grow into more mature adults the thought of futures, scared most even more because it became more of a reality.

College is not scary the thought of college and moving on from the life we’ve known for our whole lives, but never fear. High school is not the end.
