There are over 4000 colleges and universities in the US. Let me let that sink in for a moment. There are more colleges than there are shopping malls, Apple stores, amusement parks, and national parks COMBINED. I’ve researched and/or visited over one hundred colleges, but I could not begin to name more than maybe 300.
My question this week is, “How many could you name?” My guess is that most people would name the same 50 -150. So if this is true, why do so many shake their head, “No” to a college they’ve never heard of?
Where did we learn this? Teachers everywhere teach students that when you don’t know something, if you don’t have the answer, you should ask questions. You can ask the teacher, ask a parent, ask you neighbor, or phone a friend.
This week our guest, Maria Furtado, the Executive Director and national spokeswoman for Colleges That Change Lives, shares her journey to college. As the first in her family to attend college, Maria applied two golden rules; 1) Follow The Leader, and 2) Know before No.
Maria’s story will open your mind and heart to a group of 44 colleges and inspire you to fall in love with the college admission process. She believes you can land at your perfect destination: YOUniversity.
