Beyond the Ivy League: How to choose the right college for your student

Everyone wants their child to get the best education they can and when it comes to college there are a few places that everyone knows. There are so many lists but what do those rankings even mean? Choosing a college is much more than picking a school. It has to be the right school for your child; where they can flourish but be challenged, have opportunities both inside and outside the classroom, a place that becomes home and helps launch their career. Find out about all the different types of colleges and universities out there and how to choose the one that fits best.
