College is considered the best time to enjoy life to the fullest. It is where you learn to express yourself. Hence, it is essential to choose the right one.
Here are 10 things to know while you are at it. There are agencies that rate colleges based on exam results, placements, etc.
1. The Rating
You might (strike that, should) want to check out the college rating first, like the rating we see for hotels. You might also want to behold the NAAC grade by UGC while searching for the right college.
If you plan to take a BBA degree online, Walsh University would be a good choice. It has been accredited and approved by higher education bodies making it a reputable school to get your degree.
I am not saying that you should look for universities that look precisely like Oxford or Harvard. Your college must provide you with ‘your space‘ during your study period. This would make you comfortable and your time in college memorable. Trust me on this one.
3. Good Output
This should be the most fundamental factor when choosing the right place. The college you want to study at has to have good results. It is essential to check out the output of your institute because this is the future that we’re talking about. You wouldn’t want to study somewhere where only two out of fifty get out qualified, would you?
Does the institute provide proper transportation for students and teachers? Or is there a public transport facility that connects students to their homes? After all, not all the students are going to be hostelers.
You don’t want to study in a college in the middle of nowhere. Check out if the locality of the institute is fully equipped. Basic needs include an Internet cafe, bakery or cafeteria, and an excellent place to hang out with friends. Who knows about the classes you are going to bunk?
Basic facilities such as Wi-Fi, dorm, toilets, gym, radio station, canteen, a stationery shop, playground, courts, infirmary, and a seminar hall are mandatory in a college.
7. Reputation of Management and Faculty
Institute is the last phase of life where students acquire knowledge in a classroom. Also, this is the first phase where a student becomes an independent citizen. It is essential to know that the management is not too controlling or that the faculty imparts just enough knowledge to step out into the world.
8. Dedication of The Department
Scrutinize the particular department in the college you want to join. Do they have enough teachers? Does the department have enough results? Is there a positive change in students that have studied in the department? Do the teachers put in their efforts so that their students do something worth it in their lives?
Does the institute you want to go to provide enough exposure to the world? Is there any student exchange or cultural exchange program? Not all colleges might have this.
But seek out whether the college organizes intercollegiate seminars, tournaments, competitions, workshops, etc. Or whether the place lets you participate in those when held in other colleges. One should note that knowledge is not confined within the four walls.
10. Extracurricular Activities
Does your institute give equal importance to extracurricular activities as it gives importance to studies? If yes, you are in luck. This could be your time to develop and hone new talents and hobbies. If your answer is no, you certainly don’t want Jack to be a dull boy, do you?
Your college and a few other factors make you ‘you’ in the future. Choose wisely.
