What is the best college, period?
There really is no such thing as the best college, period. Each school is different, just like each person is different, so different schools work best for different people. A lot of different factors go into choosing a college – does the college have academic programs that you’re interested in? Does it have clubs and sports teams that are important to you? Do you like the campus and the students you meet there when you visit? Does the college make sense financially for you and your family? Ultimately, every college will have professors and students who are excited to learn together. Each person can be happy at a variety of different schools – it really is all about finding the school that you think will work best for you.
How much money is it to go to college for one year?
The price of one year at college depends on a number of factors, including your family’s income and the type of school. For example, the University of Maine, a public school, has a price of $8,370 per year for students who are from Maine, while private colleges can have a price of around $60,000 per year. However, many families do not have to pay those sticker prices, and many families do not even have to pay anything at all! Financial aid at colleges often covers a large chunk of the tuition, so a family only must pay what they can afford to pay each year. In addition, students can apply for scholarships from the college they’re attending or from other organizations which can cover anywhere from a small fraction to the entirety of the price of their college education.
