Consider the distance you’ll be from home, as well as the location of the campus to surrounding cities.
•Can you handle being across the country?
•What about the expenses involved in coming home for holidays or other visits – are you okay with those?
•Will you go home too frequently if you’re nearby?
•Will you get more parental drop-ins than you’d like? (Note: this may seem like a bad thing but, once you’re in school you may like these! Free meals and, perhaps, groceries!)
•The campus is great, but is it close to anything else?
Ensure you’re prepared for being close or far by weighing the different scenarios of different location options.
