The College Resource Center can help families through this decision- making process.  For more information, contact us through www.crccolumbusga.com or 706-366-2993.

Is is important to visit the colleges you are accepted to before you make your final decision May 1st.  Even better, spend a night in the dorm and go to a class!   Many colleges actually have an accepted students weekend which has it all scheduled for you.  In addition, many colleges have Fall Open Houses so be sure to look for these events on the college websites.

For more information on the college search and selection process, contact the College Resource Center at www.crccolumbusga.com or 706-366-2993.
