Whether you are filling out your application to a college online or doing a paper application, you will want to be neat and you will want to print or type perfectly.  The most time consuming process is the college essay.  The personal essay is usually about 300 to 500 words long, depending on the college.  With the resources listed below you will be prepared, organized, and confident all the way through the college admissions process

Preparing for College

College Life


Welcome to College

Are you just now starting to think about college? Never fear, we have you covered with links to information on applying, choosing, preparing, and paying for college. For good measure, we've also added links to details of campus life.

College is a big decision... so spend some time researching and talking with counselors, family, and friends about what you want out of it. And the next time you visit us at the Library, be sure to pick up some great reading material.
