Christopher Newport

LEAD A LIFE OF SIGNIFIC ANCE

W

hen former U.S. Senator Paul Trible became president of Christopher Newport in 1996, he set out to build a great university – one that nurtures hearts and minds so that students can learn to live a life of meaning and purpose. “We want our students to lead, serve, love and set the world on fire,” he says. In all things, CNU emphasizes leadership, honor and civic engagement. The study of leadership is available to all students, and nearly 25 percent participate in the President’s Leadership Program. Through their involvement, they complete rigorous coursework toward a minor in leadership studies, plus community service, foreign study and outdoor adventure. Christopher Newport is not a place for spectators. The academics are demanding, and students are expected to actively engage both inside and outside the classroom. With 200 officially recognized

clubs, organizations and activities from which to choose – a remarkable number for a school of 5,000 students – the possibilities are endless. CNU offers great teaching in small classes. Hundreds of full-time faculty, drawn from the nation’s most respected graduate programs, have been added, and there are no large sections or teaching assistants. Christopher Newport also has built a spectacularly beautiful campus with world-class facilities. “Our job is to instruct and inspire, and nothing does that more powerfully than great architecture,” Trible notes. Few schools have come so far so quickly. Applications have exploded by 800 percent, and this year CNU will receive more than 8,000 applications for a freshman class of 1,200. The quality of students is soaring. SAT scores in critical reading and math have increased by more than 200 points, and Christopher Newport’s reach and reputation continue to spread.

Kiplinger’s and The Princeton Review include the University among the best values in higher education, while U.S. News & World Report ranks CNU No. 5 among all public regional universities in the South. Christopher Newport was also named a College of Distinction by a top national guide highlighting innovative learning opportunities at the best schools. In addition, CNU is the only public institution in the nation to earn a perfect “A” from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the strength of its curriculum. Christopher Newport wants students to succeed and prosper but values far more a life focused on something greater. Here we teach that with success comes great responsibility. Notes Trible, “Our purpose at Christopher Newport is to produce good citizens and leaders – young women and men determined to transform the world for the better.”

Applying yourself A helpful guide to college deadlines BY CARLY STOCKWELL

S

GETTY IMAGES

earching for and applying to colleges is a long and complex process, with many deadlines to remember. It’s a good idea for students to begin thinking about college early — even as soon as freshman year of high school — although the bulk of their research will happen in their sophomore and junior years. Senior year, especially the first half, is usually devoted to applying to colleges and requesting scholarships and financial aid.

USA TODAY COLLEGE GUIDE 2018


ADVANCE WORK

FRESHMAN/SOPHOMORE YEARS

It seems early, but you should begin thinking about the options to further your education once you begin high school — yes, during freshman year. Talk to your guidance counselor about how to determine which subjects interest you the most and what classes to take to improve your college prospects. Begin assembling a list of possible careers, majors and colleges that interest you. This will probably change as you learn more in school and through extracurriculars and get a stronger sense of what it is you want to do with your life, but it does help to get a head start on the process. Summer jobs and volunteer work can also help you figure out your real interests. One place that can help you brainstorm is College Factual’s Majors Matcher (pages.collegefactual.com/ majors-matcher), which helps a student learn more about his or her personality, strengths and interests and the careers and majors that may fit best. The right college is not just one that suits you academically; it should also fit financially and socially. Talk to your parents about the financial plan for college. How much will they pay? How much will you contribute? Will you be taking out loans? Begin researching possible scholarships and grants; places to find these include a parent’s employer, your school, your church or local businesses.

JUNIOR YEAR

If you plan to take the SAT, take the PSAT first in October. If you’re taking the ACT route, look into the PreACT to help prepare. (For more about these tests, see page 8.) The SAT and ACT are each offered multiple times throughout the year. Take either test once as a junior to see how you’ll do, then retake it in fall of senior year. Start whittling down your initial list of colleges to one that contains the schools that seem best for you. Continue to search for scholarships.

SENIOR YEAR

application process or been accepted to any schools, you can file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as Oct. 1 your senior year if you plan on attending college the following school year. This gives students, parents and schools more time to determine final financial aid packages; it’s also to your advantage when it comes to receiving any first-come, first-serve financial aid. (For more on the financial aid process, see page 12.) Take the SAT in October, November or December, or the ACT in September, October or December. Send your scores directly to the colleges you want to attend. Applications for scholarships are also due around this time.

FALL

Senior year is the busiest time for college-bound students; you’ll be studying for tests (both high school and standardized), applying to colleges and applying for scholarships all at once. Meet with your guidance counselor, who can help you stay on track, and make sure you create a calendar that helps you stay on top of deadlines.

Are you applying for early decision or early action? That paperwork is typically due in November, sometimes earlier. You should receive notice in December that you are accepted, giving you time to apply to other colleges if the answer is no. Most college applications are due that same December or January.

SPRING By September, you should have a final list of colleges to which to apply. The number may vary, depending on how much you want to spend on application fees (the average fee in 2016 was $42 per school), what kind of programs you’re interested in and how many essays you really, really want to write. Most advisers suggest one or two schools you’re confident will accept you (“safety schools”), three or four that are actually a good fit, and one or two that you like but that might be a stretch based on your grades or their acceptance rate.

College acceptance letters and financial aid offers begin to arrive in April. Review and compare financial aid offers with your parents or guardians to figure out which school is offering you the best deal. If you’ve done your research, there shouldn’t be too many surprises in the financial aid packages. Most schools have enrollment deadlines of May 1. Let the college you’ve chosen know you’re coming and make any necessary deposits.

By now, you should have, or need to begin compiling, an initial list of colleges that interest you. Start scheduling trips to visit them. It may be more convenient for you to do this during the summer, but it’s often better to visit while school is in session so you can get a better feel

To test, or not to test SAT and ACT scores are becoming optional at many schools BY SOPHIA TULP

don’t have to. “In the college application process, there has historically been this really big emphasis on preparing for the SAT and ACT and getting the best score,” says Jessica Hair, marketing outreach coordinator for Niche, a college search website. “Now, people are broadening the scope of the kind of university they are trying to attend. There are more options now than ever before.” For students, this means that a college will consider application items such as personal essays, grade-point average, academic rigor and recommendation letters rather than the standardized test score. Test scores are still used at some of these schools, however, to determine placement and financial aid. “(Test-optional admissions) gives students a way to be considered as more than a score,” says Bob Schaeffer, public education director of The National Center for Fair and Open Testing (FairTest), an organization that “promot(es) fair, open, valid and educationally beneficial evaluations,” according to its website.

he designers of the SAT and ACT have updated and adapted their exams in the decades since college-bound students began taking them. While most universities still use the data in their admissions process, there's a growing trend at some schools to not use the information at all. Bowdoin College in Maine became the first “testoptional” school in 1969, when it stopped requiring students to provide their SAT/ACT scores. At the time, few schools followed that example; now more than 950 are marketing themselves as test-optional in an effort to focus on more than just standardized testing in their admissions process. For these schools, students can choose to send in their test scores if they want, but they

versities, including students of color, first-generation students and students from low-income households,” says Laurie Koehler, who oversees GW’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions. (There are exceptions: Homeschooled students and recruited athletes are still required to submit scores.) James Murphy, director of national outreach for The Princeton Review, one of the most popular test-prep companies, says that the test-optional policy is good for some students, especially those who don’t perform as well on tests as they do on classwork. However, he advises that most selective and highlyselective schools — ones that accept fewer than 50 percent of their applicants — still deem test scores one of the most important components in admission. Many schools also use test scores for merit-based scholarship purposes as well, another point to consider when deciding to take a test or not, he says.

fairtest.org/university/ optional.) Top-ranked colleges on the list include recognizable names such as New York University, The University of Texas at Austin and DePaul University in Chicago. When The George Washington University went test-optional in 2015, officials said that it was an effort to increase diversity among underrepresented groups at the Washington, D.C.-based school, especially as the price of testing rises. One ACT, including the written portion, costs $62.50, and it’s $13 extra per school if you want scores to go to more than four. One SAT with essay costs $60, plus $12 extra per school for more than four reports. Many students take tests more than once and also spend hundreds of dollars on test preparation. “The test-optional policy … will broaden access for those high-achieving students who have historically been underrepresented at selective colleges and uni-

Most of the time, students whose scores fall within or above the average score at their desired school should consider sending their scores to boost their chances, Murphy adds. But, if you’re not a great test-taker or suffer from test anxiety, and your score reflects that, test-optional may be the way to go. “We think it is unwise not to take the test at all,” Murphy says. “You want to leave the options open.” The College Board, which administers the SAT, understandably agrees with this. “High school grades aren’t objective measures — they’re subject to variables like school demographics, teacher discretion and state and district standards. And they’re increasingly subject to inflation,” the organization says on its website. In terms of the tests, it’s really up to you which one is best. The SAT and ACT generally test the same types of content; the biggest difference is that the ACT has a specific science test and gives less time per question than the SAT. The SAT has one math section where you are not permitted to use a calculator. But most colleges don’t prefer one over the other, so the decision for you comes down to personal preference. More students began taking the ACT after 2012, when the company’s contract expanded to include more states. Students also began switching to the ACT in 2016 after the SAT changed its content, format and scoring; they got nervous about the new test, Murphy says. “The reality is that most students do just as well on one test as they do on the other,” he says.

expensive, and student loan interest rates keep rising. “The proposed budget by the Trump administration really removes a number of the places where a low-income student would go to earn a degree,” Michael Lomax, the president and CEO of the United Negro College Fund, told ABC News. Here’s a guide to navigating the process:

How to find your way to gold at the end of the financial-aid rainbow BY TEDDY NYKIEL

A

sking the question, “How do I pay for college?” is like asking “How do I get healthy?” or “How do I learn another language?” There are lots of answers, but there’s not always one clear path. Realistically, you’ll probably have to tap your own savings to pay for tuition, room and board, and other collegerelated expenses. The average family covers 34 percent of college costs through income and savings, according to a 2017 report by Sallie Mae. To pay for the rest, use grants and scholarships, work-study earnings and student loans — in that order. Maximize the amount of gift aid, or cash you don’t have to pay back, before you borrow money to pay for college.

It may also be getting more difficult to pay for tuition. In President Trump’s proposed fiscal year 2018 budget, the administration recommended a cut in financial aid for students. The largest proposed cut is $3.9 billion from the Pell Grant program’s $10.6 billion surplus. That’s the largest federal grant program — which means many wouldbe-recipients may need to find other ways to subsidize their college costs. (The surplus covers grants in years when Congress does not appropriate enough money to cover all students.) Low-income students worry that reductions in financial aid could hold them back from attending their dream schools, especially as the cost of attending top-tier colleges gets more

SEARCH FOR SCHOLARSHIPS

After you submit the FAFSA, you’ll have to wait a few weeks — or even months — to find out what federal, state and school-based aid you’re offered. In the meantime, search and apply for privately funded scholarships. There are thousands of scholarships out there, so use a scholarship search tool to narrow your selection. You could be eligible for various awards based on factors including your grade point average, gender, ethnicity or even an esoteric interest such as raising goats (tsgra.com/education.php). You don’t have to wait until

Counting on cash

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is your ticket into the financial aid arena. Submitting the FAFSA (fafsa. ed.gov) puts you in the running to receive federal grants, work-study opportunities, loans and some state and school-based aid. Fill it out as soon as possible as you begin applying to schools, because some colleges award money on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition to the FAFSA, some schools also require that you complete the College Guide’s CSS Profile (student. collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile) to be considered for aid. There is a fee connected with this, however. Fill out the FAFSA even if you don’t expect to qualify for any aid, says Ben Miller, senior director for postsecondary education at the Center for American Progress, a non-partisan progressive policy institute. All students — regardless of family income — qualify for at least unsubsidized federal student loans as long as they fill out the FAFSA. Plus, many states, colleges and even some private scholarships require all applicants to fill out the FAFSA, so if you skip it, you could disqualify yourself for those opportunities.

THE IMPACT OF HIGHER INTEREST If you’re planning to take out a federal student loan to pay for college in the coming school year, you’ll see higher interest rates than in the previous year. The new rates will determine the amount you owe monthly in interest once you start repaying the loan. The student loan interest rates kicked in July 1 and are fixed, which means if you got a new federal loan for the 2017-18 school year, your interest rate will stay the same through repayment. Each year, Congress sets interest rates on student loans to align with the 10-year Treasury note. This year’s new rates are: • Subsidized and unsubsidized direct loans for undergrads: 4.45 percent (3.76 percent in 2016-17) • Unsubsidized direct loans for graduate students: 6 percent (5.31 percent in 2016-17) • Grad PLUS and Parent PLUS loans: 7 percent (6.31 percent in 2016-17)

you’re a senior in high school to start your scholarship search — in fact, it pays to start earlier. For example, Western Golf Association Evans Scholars Foundation awards full-ride scholarships to hundreds of golf caddies each year (wgaesf.org). But you have to be a caddie for at least two years to qualify, which means you’d have to start caddying during your sophomore year in high school, at the latest, to be eligible by the time you apply at the beginning of your senior year.

DECIDE WHAT TO ACCEPT

When you finally receive your financial aid award letter — usually 14

USA TODAY COLLEGE GUIDE 2018

in late spring, if you’re planning to start school in the fall semester — you’ll likely be offered a mix of grants, scholarships, work-study funds and student loans: Grants and scholarships: These financial sources provide money you don’t have to pay back. The federal government offers several kinds of grants, including Pell Grants, the largest federal grant program (studentaid.ed.gov/sa). States and universities also award grants, which tend to be needbased, and scholarships, which are usually given based on a student’s merit or background. Work-study: The federal workstudy program funds part-time

The last federal student loan increase was in 2014, when rates for undergraduate students rose from 3.86 percent for the 2013-14 school year, to 4.66 percent for the 2014-15 school year. The highest rates in recent memory occurred between 2006 and 2008, when undergrad loan rates were 6.8 percent. Those borrowers may now benefit from student loan refinancing to get a lower rate. Federal student loan interest rates tend to be lower than the rates you’ll get with private lenders. Generally, you should use grants, scholarships and savings first, then max out your federal loans before turning to private loans. Private loans don’t offer certain protections or loan forgiveness opportunities that federal loans do. However, if you or your co-signer have excellent credit, your interest rate could be lower on a private loan.

Federal student loan borrowers have access to income-driven repayment plans, which can lower your monthly payment, and forgiveness programs, which can offer loan relief after you make qualifying payments for a certain amount of time. Borrowed private aid: money you borrow from a bank that you pay back with interest. Your interest rate typically depends on your credit score and other details about your finances. Private loans don’t offer as many flexible repayment options as federal loans, and private lenders don’t have forgiveness programs. Take out private student loans only if you really have to.

Students have been able to submit a FAFSA for the 2017-2018 academic year since Oct. 1, 2016, three months before the usual Jan. 1 submission date. This is a permanent change, so you can submit your FAFSA as early as Oct. 1 every year from now on. 2. You are required to report tax information from an earlier year. Whether or not you choose

USA TODAY COLLEGE GUIDE 2018

to file the FAFSA early, you are required to report your tax and income information (and that of your parents, if applicable) from the previous year. For example, for the 2017-2018 FAFSA, submitted in late 2016 or early 2017, you should have reported your 2015 income rather than 2016’s. If your situation has changed substantially since 2015, the FAFSA website recommends you file as required and then contact your school’s financial aid office.

3. The federal deadline hasn’t changed, but your school’s might have. Some schools have changed their individual deadlines from “as soon as possible after Jan. 1” to “as soon as possible after Oct. 1.” Check with your school — or the schools you’re applying to — to verify individual deadlines. If you plan on attending college between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018, you may submit the FAFSA using 2015 information until June 30, 2018. If you plan on attending

between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019, submit the FAFSA with 2016 information between Oct. 1, 2017, and June 30, 2019. 4. Filing earlier doesn’t guarantee an earlier offer. Some schools will offer aid packages early, but others won’t. As always, read all school communications carefully and clarify with them when needed.

Check to see whether graduates of the program are doing well in their fields. Ask what type of career services are provided. Will the college help you both short- and long-term after graduation? Does it have a department that can help you find a job? If it doesn’t, this could be a red flag.

AFFORDABILITY

Choosing an online college requires different standards BY RYAN TETZLAFF

W

ith the continued maturation of online college programs, there’s never been a better time to start earning your degree on your terms. So what should you look for when trying to find the best online programs?

ACCREDITATION

In order for your degree to be taken seriously after you graduate, you must find an accredited school. This ensures that some basic levels of quality and outcomes are being maintained. Be careful, though: Accreditation alone may not be enough to guarantee quality. Accrediting agencies do not always uphold their standards, and in rare circumstances, can be stripped of their authority. This happened in December 2016 with an agency known as ACICS, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, forcing its affiliated schools to find a new accreditation agency to remain eligible for student financial aid funding. Some schools closed with little warning. Some fields require a specialized accreditation, including health, law, 20

USA TODAY COLLEGE GUIDE 2018

veterinary science and other subjects. It is very important to find out what types of accreditation are required by your specific field. If you sign up for an online program in nursing but your school isn’t accredited by the appropriate agencies, you may not be able to get a job in your chosen field without additional schooling. The U.S. Department of Education keeps a database of accredited colleges and universities at ope.ed.gov/ accreditation.

PROVEN TRACK RECORD

Does your online college have a proven track record for success in your program? Find out what the graduation rates are and perhaps more importantly, what the employment rates are after graduation. If the graduation rate is exceptionally low, you may want to ask why, or consider a different college. Be up front when talking to colleges about your post-graduation prospects. Ask how well your specific program is respected in the working field; just because the school has an excellent nursing program, for example, doesn’t mean its engineering program is good.

OTHER CRITERIA

One of the biggest advantages of attending an online college is flexibility in terms of scheduling and attendance. Make sure the options the college gives you work with your schedule, and that the overall length of the program works with your plans for graduation. While scheduling may be more flexible, getting a credible degree still takes a significant amount of time. If you can’t commit the hours, don’t have the discipline to do the (often) selfguided work or have trouble avoiding distractions at home, an online institution may not be a good fit. Although online instruction is given in a group setting, you will have to be comfortable working more independently than if you were in the classroom. Group assignments still come up with an online degree, but you will have to work without face-to-face contact. For some, this may be difficult. See whether credits you have earned elsewhere can transfer to the online school. This can give you a head start. Look into whether the school accepts credit for classes taken on the job or in the military. Find out how easily credits earned online will transfer to another school — online or traditional.

Degrees from a distance

One of the biggest misconceptions about online colleges is that they are less expensive than traditional colleges. Some are, but some are not. Find out what financial aid is available that can make it affordable, but don’t sacrifice quality for lower prices. Make sure you know how long it will take you to complete your degree. Most online students take longer than the standard four years. Is the tuition still affordable when you may be taking classes for five or six years?

spiring scientists with an interest in literature, psych majors who are fascinated by engineering, musicians who enjoy math — these students have traditionally found it difficult to take elective classes on subjects outside their demanding course requirements, let alone blend their interests into one degree. 22

USA TODAY COLLEGE GUIDE 2018

But many colleges are developing new, integrated programs that let these students indulge multiple interests, not just because it’s fun, but because the universities hope to graduate students who are ready for a dynamic, multidimensional professional sphere. Smith College, an all-women’s university in Northampton, Mass.,

known for its strength in liberal arts, also houses the Picker Engineering Program. Within the context of a strong humanities environment, the program — which graduated its first students in 2004 — aims to cater to scienceminded students as well as broaden the horizons of those more comfortable in the liberal arts.

SMITH COLLEGE

“Ruth Simmons, a former president of Smith, once said, ‘Women must not accept so marginal a role in so important a field,’” says Andrew Guswa, the program’s director and an engineering professor. “Women only make up 20 percent of the engineering field, and it hasn’t moved in decades. We feel that it is part of our mission and responsibility as a women’s college to do it.” Within the Picker program, students can choose between two degrees: a bachelor of science in engineering science degree or a bachelor of arts in engineering arts. The former is tailored to students aiming to become professional engineers, while the latter program opens up the subject to those who are curious but don’t necessarily want to work in that field. “The B.A. degree is a liberal arts degree in the same way one might major in anthropology or history but doesn’t plan on being an anthropologist or historian,” says Guswa. “Maybe a student with a fine arts background wants to learn about engineering technicalities. There are many stories of what students do and why students pursue this degree.” Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., hosts a five-year dual-degree program that enables students to study two disciplines in-depth. It combines the bachelor of science engineering program with the bachelor of arts program of the student’s choice, allowing those curious about both STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and liberal arts to not have to sacrifice one for the other. “At Bucknell, engineering and liberal arts are not incompatible, but instead they complement each other,” says Karl Voss, interim dean of the school’s College of Arts and Sciences. “Those who choose the five-year dual degree program get extra time to fully explore that integration.” Harvey Mudd College is the reverse of Smith — the Claremont, Calif., college only offers bachelor’s of science degrees in STEM majors for undergrads. While students cannot major in liberal arts, the school does have a Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts designed to give students a well-rounded education. Courses cover anthropology, music, religious studies and more.

The Rhode Island School of Design Nature Lab lets students blend science's beauty and practicality.

“That ability to see connections across disciplines is critical to our curriculum. Being able to write well and speak well is a part of it,” says Peter Osgood, director of admission at Harvey Mudd. “There’s so much related to the liberal arts philosophy, and our style of learning is extremely collaborative.” Harvey Mudd and Smith take advantage of relationships with nearby colleges to further increase their students’ access to resources. Smith students can take engineering classes at the University of Massachusetts Amherst less than 10 miles away. Harvey Mudd is part of a consortium of eight colleges located on one 560-acre site, letting students take non-STEM courses at neighboring colleges largely within walking distance. “At Harvey Mudd, we have zero percent of students that don’t cross colleges in the consortium — but gosh, why would they not?” says Osgood. Other college students are taking their love of STEM and liberal arts into their own hands. A student-led organization called STEAM (steamwith. us), adding art to the usual STEM lineup, currently has chapters at eight universities, including Rutgers, Brown, Yale and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “The world today doesn’t exist in a vacuum, so it’s counterintuitive to silo ourselves off in departmental thinking,”

says Jeremy Joachim, co-president of STEAM at Brown. “The people between engineers and artists are all trying to solve the same problems and address the same concerns.” STEAM was founded by students at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011, and each new chapter is opened by students, for students. They work on projects, host workshops and collaborate with their universities and each other to “approach arts, sciences and humanities in an integrated, holistic way,” Joachim says. “We’ve done a good job in the last four years to get STEM people at our school thinking about design and creativity, research that is grounded in reality, human-centered design and real-world applications,” he adds. “The whole purpose of STEAM is to put everything on a level playing field, to get everything involved at the same time.” Whether the programs are department-led or student-run, there seems to be a consensus that the STEM field is progressing to a more inclusive, STEAM-driven direction as a professional necessity. “What we need are individuals who can think and communicate clearly, work as a team and are diverse while also being technically competent — but technical competency is no longer sufficient,” says Guswa. “Things are changing very quickly.” Harvey Mudd’s Osgood says, “To think that you can have an impact as a scientist and not understand the societal context you have? Oh, boy! I think you’re really deluding yourself. If you’ve got your head in the sand, you’re possibly incapable of achieving the impact you want to have.” The integration of STEM and liberal arts aims to create a more humanized and grounded field that reflects the people who create — and are affected by — science, structure, theory and thought in everyday life. “The arts and humanities are not there to be a side hobby. There are different ways of thinking and problem-solving that art and humanities provide,” says Joachim. “Taking that mode of thinking and applying it to STEM is the benefit.” Julia Arciga is a senior at The George Washington University.

A parent’s-eye view How to tour a college without getting in your child’s way

A

s a parent, I learned a lot on my children’s college tours: that I could drive a large pickup truck through Lower Manhattan without scratching it; that Taylor Swift’s 1989 can be listened to on endless repeat through five states without causing headaches; that it’s best not to buy T-shirts for schools your child has not actually decided to attend. I also learned to let the children make up their own minds. College tours are the time and place to ask questions — what’s provided in the residence halls? How much access do you have to your professors? Is the food in the cafeteria decent? Can I walk across

campus at night alone? Where do I find out about clubs and organizations? Do student groups intermingle, or is this a cliquey campus? Can I have overnight guests in this dorm? Here’s the thing, though: This is information your young adults need to have, not you. It may not occur to them that they need to ask, though, or that the information they’re hearing on these topics might be incomplete. Or they may not want to ask certain questions in front of other people, like Mom and/or Dad. So rather than helicoptering in and becoming That Parent who monopolizes the tour, act as your student’s wingman. Guide them

them — the chaotic and confusing food court, the huge distance between buildings on a cold, windy campus — and diplomatically talk about it later. Seemingly minor things can end up becoming major factors in your child’s decision. Try to keep your opinions out of the discussion — go for, “What did you think of that food court?” rather than “Oh, my goodness, that food court was a train wreck!” (And yes, it was a dealbreaker.) Conversely, not everything that disturbs you is worth bringing up. The dining hall food looks wilted and leftover? The residence hall entrance doesn’t have a 24-hour guard? Will it affect your child directly and negatively? Mention it. You personally find the multiple piercings on the bookstore clerk distasteful? That’s your business; keep it to yourself. Discreetly take notes if you need to, either during or after the tour. Campuses blend into one another pretty quickly and tour guide patter starts to sound the same, especially on a grand multischool trip. Zoning out is

pretty easy to do, and impressions can be fleeting. Speaking of multischool trips: Don’t (she said, wearily). Just don’t. Two places at a time, max. Maybe one a day. More than that and the schools really blend into one another — and the money you spend on travel starts to add up faster than the application fees. Fatigue also doesn’t help, especially when you need to evaluate the valuable information you get from the tours and make a serious decision. College tours are often touted as great family getaways, but they’re really life-altering business trips. Back to the tour. There will be topics you want to know more about, especially the ones that will cost you extra cash — whether to get a single dorm room over a double, the benefits of the deluxe food plan over the basic, how much furniture you need to provide. Go ahead and ask about that kind of thing, no matter how obvious the eye-rolling gets. It’s (likely mostly) your money, after all. Here’s something we didn’t know was necessary: Find out well before the day

of your tour if the general campus tour will be enough. For students interested in specialized programs, it may not be. Drama, art and music students, for instance, may have to schedule a special trip to see those facilities, and this usually can’t be done on the spot. Tune out the tour guide occasionally (and on purpose). Take a look around the campus. What are the kids protesting? What kind of activities are advertised on the handmade fliers? Which kind of organizations seem to take priority? What’s the message you get from students’ T-shirts? How heavily advertised is the sports team in season? How cluttered is the cafeteria? These are all clues to the university’s daily, real personality, not the one the admissions office wants to present. If the activities and atmosphere do appeal to your student, dig a little deeper. One school seemed a reasonable fit for my daughter, for example, until she realized just how hardcore and humorless some of the interesting-atfirst-glance organizations seemed to be. (Also, the tuition was absurd.) The most important thing to remember, though, is that it’s your son or daughter who will be living on this campus for the next four years, not you. This city mom, for example, would never have given a second thought to the rural, isolated school my son chose (we lost cell service for part of the trip! The horror!). But for my outdoorsy boy, the calm and the quiet and the beauty of the surrounding mountains made it the right place for him. You’ve given your input, and you might be writing the checks, yes. But it’s their next four years — and in the end, it’s their decision. Elizabeth Neus has escorted two children through 11 college tours, one Portfolio Day and one National Unified Auditions weekend.

BROADENING THEIR SCOPE

Christian colleges are adapting, too. At some universities, professors now teach “broad, historic Christianity,” rather than focusing on a particular denomination, says Rick Ostrander, vice president for academic affairs and professional programs at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, which represents more than 30 denominations and about 150 U.S. and Canadian institutions such as the College of the Ozarks, Indiana Wesleyan University and Bethel University. “Our schools are as vibrantly Christian as they were 10, 50 or 100 years ago, but they tend to focus on the essential orthodox Christian beliefs as opposed to one denominational focus,” Ostrander says. For example, at Messiah College, a historically Mennonite institution in Pennsylvania, faculty members now affirm the Apostle’s Creed, a core statement common to any branch of Christianity, he says.

globally and locally, Ostrander says. That means recruiting students from around the world while still providing practical community-based training, such as a four-year agriculture degree offered by Dordt College in Iowa, one of the nation’s top farming states. Another example: Zaytuna College sees a need for a graduate program in its repertoire, which now only includes one undergraduate degree — a bachelor’s in Islamic law and theology. “Everything that you have read about problems on college campuses will to some degree be true on one or other or most of our campuses,” Sheeran says. “We’re not exempt.”

The University of Florida campus has one of the largest Jewish populations in the country. Yet, the school’s Hillel chapter, part of a national Jewish student organization represented on more than 550 U.S. campuses, was not “engaging masses,” says Rabbi Adam Grossman, the chapter’s CEO. “It’s not just UF Hillel,” Grossman says. “If we look at statistical analysis when it comes to Jewish engagement, the data suggests that less and less people are engaging with legacy organizations.” Grossman and his team redesigned Hillel, slimming down an array of offerings to a few programs. UF Hillel now matches students with internship opportunities and coaches them on building companies, all through a Jewish lens. In the 2016-2017 school year, more than 77 percent of UF’s Jewish students interacted with Hillel at least once, up from 55 percent in 2014-2015, the first year of the redesign, Grossman says.

A broader education

Studying in another country opens avenues you’d never expect STORY AND ILLUSTRATION BY ROSALIE HAIZLETT

T

he summer after my freshman year of college, I boarded a plane bound for Paris. I was an introverted young art student who was afraid of pretty much everything. I was terrified. I spent two months with a host family in a rural French town, painting a mural in a kids’ community center and taking French classes. In my first week with the family, I discovered that my high-school level French did practically nothing for me. I also discovered that caviar isn’t blackberry jam.

30

USA TODAY COLLEGE GUIDE 2018

The first few weeks were very difficult, but it got better. In the end, the amazing discoveries and experiences far outweighed the negative. Since my summer in France, I’ve also studied abroad in Cyprus and South Korea. With each trip, I learned so many new things and gained so much more confidence. I never anticipated the impact my experiences abroad would have on my career. While I was in Cyprus, I began a personal project where I informally interviewed locals and new friends about their lives and

created illustrations of them in their shops, galleries, and homes. This “illustrated journalism” project eventually caught the eye of an arts foundation in my home state, and I was awarded a fellowship and grant to continue this type of project in West Virginia. There is no telling what doors your experiences abroad may open for your future career. When I first looked into studying abroad, I was discouraged by the high costs advertised on studyabroad sites. Going to college in the United States was expensive enough — how could I afford a semester in an exotic location? Nevertheless, I scheduled a meeting with my school’s study-abroad counselor and learned that there actually are a multitude of options to make your study-abroad experience affordable: Many U.S. universities are affiliated with “partner schools” in foreign countries. This relationship between the two schools allows for reduced rates. Additionally, most private study-abroad programs work with your school to ensure that the money you would have paid for your normal tuition is applied to the program cost. Many study-abroad students end up paying the same amount that they would have paid for a normal semester at home! The idea of spending a semester or year abroad can be intimidating, but the knowledge that you will discover so much about yourself and potentially advance your career in unexpected ways, without breaking the bank, makes all those jitters worth it. Rosalie Haizlett is a recent graduate of West Liberty University.

LITTLE IMPACT EXPECTED FOR STUDENTS FROM TRAVEL BAN The Trump administration’s revised travel ban, which went into effect in June, is expected to affect far fewer travelers than the original proposal. Citizens from six majority-Muslim countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — with no previous ties to the U.S. are barred from entering under the ban. But the U.S. will allow entry of those who have a “bona fide relationship” with a U.S. entity (school, job, etc.) or a relationship with a U.S. citizen (spouse or close family). International students who are studying in the U.S. and receive an acceptance letter from a U.S. university will be allowed entry to the country with a valid visa, as they are seen to have a “bona fide relationship” with a U.S. entity. Karen Pita Loor, a clinical associate professor of law at Boston University, says students who already have F1 visas, for those attending a university, or M1 visas, for those attending a vocational or technical school, should have no problem. Students’ dependents should also have no problem traveling if they have valid F2 visas. The U.S. Supreme Court plans to hear arguments on all the elements of the ban in October.

Follow your own path through college, but prepare to change course “What are you going to major in?” “How many schools have you seen?”

I’m willing to bet you’ve heard at least one of the above Antoinette D’Addario is a questions, or similar senior at American ones, during your University. college search. Every family gathering you attend has probably featured a constant stream of people asking whether you’ve decided where to go. If you’re anything like I was, you’re one college-related comment away from joining the circus. Despite what your family, friends and teachers have said, you don’t need to have these decisions finalized this minute. Even more importantly, you can change your mind! Choose a school and end up despising it? You can transfer! Pick a major but hate every assignment? Switch to a different one! Do try to start with something you think you like. Don’t choose a school you don’t like

just because you think you should go there (or other family members have gone there), or a major that seems like it will get you a job but bores you to tears even before you enter a classroom. Changing course may result in some sacrifices going forward (an extra semester or two at school, for example), but that doesn’t mean you should settle for things you don’t enjoy. Be patient, as well. My school, American University, attracts a lot of accomplished students — some so accomplished they make me feel like I’m still a high school freshman. But I’ve realized no matter where I go after AU, there will always be people who are far more successful and established than me. And the same goes for you. Understand that there will still always be someone who has done more things, had an internship earlier than you or has gotten a job offer before graduation. No matter — in time, you will have those things, too. Here’s my advice to those of you looking at colleges right now: First, visit! Don’t choose a school without visiting it and asking whether you

can see yourself walking to classes, making friends and studying there for the next four years. Second, talk to current and former students. Ask them about their experiences and what advice they have for someone who is looking at their alma mater. Third, think about finances. Your dream school may be a stretch for your budget, but it may still be a possibility. Consider going to a cheaper school for a couple years and then transferring or look at scholarship opportunities. Fourth and finally, make this decision for you. It’s easy to choose a school because your parents or teachers think you should go there, but you’re the one who will be living and learning there. I visited a dozen schools, but American was the only one that gave me a sense of home and comfort. If nothing else I’ve said sticks, please remember this: College is going to change your life, no matter where you go. But remember to enjoy the rest of your time in high school because, believe it or not, you will miss it eventually.

College is a time of not always difficult, but numerous, choices. The next four years will be a molding experience, and it may be a cliché to say that it will change you — but Matthew Wilson is a recent graduate it will. As a kind of of The University of litmus test for the real Alabama entering world, what you do graduate studies at New York outside the classroom University. matters as much as the hours spent studying and cramming for tests that will surely dominate your life. So in addition to looking for internships and part-time jobs, check out the on-campus organizations. Finding an organization (or two or three) to join is a vital, if not always easy, part of the college experience. It’s about following your passions, broadening your experiences and stepping outside your comfort zone. For some, that can be a move toward something serious, joining organizations that

work to end human trafficking or poverty, for example. For others, it’s about having fun — hosting video and board game nights on a Saturday or pretending to be medieval knights in a park. But take care. When I came to college, I knew I wanted to write. I didn’t just want to write, but I wanted to be the best writer that ever blew through The University of Alabama. I joined the student newspaper. I joined the yearbook. I joined every writing organization that would give me the opportunity to flex my skills. And ... I stretched myself too thin. I joined too many organizations too quickly and felt added pressure on how to devote my limited free time. I don’t regret my initial decision, even as I had to drop some organizations for others I was more willing to devote myself to. It doesn’t matter how many you join; it matters how you spend your time within these organizations. If you’re not having fun, if you’re not doing something worthwhile, then what is the point? For myself, writing two stories a week on average for the student paper was what mattered. For other

students, it was working their way up in student government. There’s no specific criteria for the best college organizations; what matters is whether you make a personal connection with the organization. Many colleges make finding groups or clubs easy through activity fairs, and, at Alabama, Get On Board days. Organizations line up in booths and pitch themselves, like a director might sell a Hollywood movie. Some offer fliers or promotional items to draw in potential new members. These events are usually offered once a semester or once a year and give incoming freshmen or upperclassmen looking to branch out a full view of what the campus has to offer. Most universities also offer an online directory that lists all the organizations on campus, with contact information. They're a useful starting point for exploring what groups are available on campus. College is about growing as a person, and so much of that growth happens outside the classroom. Finding an organization to join can open many avenues.

Take it from me: Your campus will get smaller. Take it from me: Your campus will get smaller. If you grew up in a small town and are headed to a big school, keep this in mind. Your campus James Hoyt is a recent graduate of will seem vast the University of at first, but soon Kansas. enough, as you get familiar with the campus and the town, it will start to feel cozier. I come from Haviland, a town of 700 in southwest Kansas. My entire high school had 120 students — and that was after we consolidated schools with the neighboring town. In going to the University of Kansas (KU), I became one of about 20,000 other students. Even though I handled the transition well, the prospect of trying to stand out among thousands of other students was daunting. Here's how a small-towner can get used to life at a big university:

Look for familiar faces As the days, weeks and semesters stack up, you’ll start noticing the same faces around campus. You might meet them in class. You might see them at a party and say “Hey! I see you on the sidewalk between the library and the dorm all the time.” They might even become your best friends. So don’t worry about the thousands of other faces you saw at convocation. You’ll make friends. You’ll study for classes and hit the parties with them. You’ll walk down the aisle at graduation with them. By the end of my first week, I felt like I had known some of my floor mates for years. Find your thing It might be intramural sports. It might be the student union. It might be walking on a tightrope between trees. It might even be participating in mock sword fights. This is the time of your life where you get to experiment. If your high school was short on extracurriculars, there are hundreds of clubs and organizations out there to try out. Mine happened to be the student

newspaper, the University Daily Kansan. Involvement on campus can make the difference between a fulfilling, meaningful college experience and a forgettable one. Don’t be afraid to take a leap You might be attending this school despite the reservations of your peers, family or teachers back home. That doesn't mean you’re doing the wrong thing. Shealon Calkins, a KU student from the small city of Larned, Kan. (pop. 4,054), says one of his teachers back home was concerned he’d be made to conform to a specific worldview. “I’m actually thinking for myself more now than I did in high school,” he says. “Now I have a lot more goals about where I want to go and what I want to do.” That’s not to say that returning home is an objectively bad idea. Rural America is struggling with population decline right now, and that comes with a loss of services and intellectual capital. Taking your skills back home after graduation could help to stem the brain drain afflicting rural communities.

In the shadows of the Vatican, I served the homeless while learning Italian in my study abroad program. On campus and in the community back in Cleveland, my professors and classmates inspired me to act, innovate, and lead with confidence and heart. John Carroll has taught me how to be a person with passions, who cares about others, and who works to share this with the world. The journey to fulfilling your purpose starts at

You are a leader called to engage the world. At John Carroll, we are committed to supporting you as you chart your own path. We will challenge you to integrate your thinking and provide the experiences that prepare you for a constantly changing world.

Our National Parks The National Mall welcomes millions every year, but what they see is hardly welcoming.

It welcomes the world to our most significant monuments and memorials. But like many national parks, the National Mall in Washington, D.C., desperately needs our help, including $350 million in federal funding for maintenance, repairs, and preservation.

PROVIDED BY KATHERINE DU

Applying to college is tough; these tips will help you survive Lesson learned as I took my journey through the world of college applications: Your dreams don’t control you — you control your dreams. I was rejected from Katherine Du is a freshman my dream school, at Stanford and the biggest University. takeaway I had from the experience is this: Don’t get married to the idea of attending a particular institution. These days, we are blessed with a plethora of extraordinary universities. Avoid placing all of your heart in one basket. It’ll save you from a world of pain. Practice writing as much as you can, particularly through journaling. With so many colleges asking for numerous supplemental essays, having meaningful material from your personal life on hand to write about is a lifesaver. Journaling also allows for introspective excavation, and your archeological reward will be a therapeutic relationship with your mind. Some great books to help get you started

include: Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg; The Pillow Book by Sei Shōnagon; and The Book of Questions by Pablo Neruda. If journaling doesn’t pique your interest, you can keep a video diary instead. It will let you simultaneously vent and record your thoughts for potential future use — and laughter. You miss every shot you don’t take. On one hand, apply to the school(s) you never dreamed would work out. That’s how I ended up at Stanford University. But taking a shot in the dark outside of college applications also has value. As an avid writer in high school, I pitched stories to more than 30 publications between my sophomore and junior years. My only response then came from The Huffington Post, for which I write a running column to this day. I firmly believe that putting yourself out there is crucial to succeeding. Master the technical aspects of applications. Milk the time you have in the summer to its maximum potential. I filled out my Common Application and wrote all my

supplemental essays before my junior year even started. This gave me ample time during the fall to make tweaks and revisions before submitting my applications. Rejections are more of a loss to institutions than individuals. Every year, college application readers are faced with avalanches of 10-plus page applications — hearts will be broken. A mantra I live by: hang on tightly, but let go lightly. Trust that if you work hard, your tenacity could take you to the places you are meant to be. Throughout my writing career, I’ve been rejected countless times from competitions and publications. I’ve learned to give my utmost effort to every piece of my work and life, while being fully aware of the possibility of failure. Always come out laughing and cherishing. The running gags my friends and I share carried me through my most downtrodden moments. Family, compassion, stories, resilience, love — these show us not only who we are, but who we are meant to be. And in the end, college is only the basil on the pizza of life.

New year, new format GMAT changes may benefit students hoping to earn an MBA BY SCOTT BEHRENS

S

o you’ve made the call — you’re going to graduate school to get that MBA. But there’s another decision you may not realize you have to make: which admissions test to take. The score you get on the Graduate Management Admission Test is considered by most business schools to be one of the most important factors in getting accepted. Other components include your GPA, a personal statement, letters of recommendation, interviews

and work experience. But lately, there’s been a change in how schools approach standardized test results. The Kaplan Test Prep company says that more than 90 percent of business schools now allow applicants to submit either their GMAT scores or GRE General Test results (the Graduate Record Exam required by grad schools). “If you are definitely set on getting your MBA, then I recommend that you take a very close look at the GMAT,

because it is still the gold standard for business school admissions,” says Dennis Yim, a Kaplan employee who has helped students prepare for both tests for more than a decade. The GMAT is still preferred by most business schools, he says, because schools have the most data on how successful a student is likely to be in business school based on the score he or she gets on the GMAT. However, if you’re not 100 percent sure about business school and might eventually want to study in a different graduate program that requires the GRE, you might want to take that instead. Alternatively, if you’re positive that you’re business-school-bound but truly think you could do better on the GRE, it’s worth considering; just make sure you find out first if the business school you’re applying for strongly prefers the GMAT. Now, if you’ve made up your mind to take the GMAT, congratulations! Start studying. “(The GMAT) is the No. 1 biggest application killer,” Yim says. “Meaning if you get a low score, that is going to be the biggest thing that can hold you back.” He recommends studying for about 100 hours or more over a two- to three-month period. “There is no magic formula,” he says. “Recognize that with the time investment, you are going to be able to raise your score.” This year, the four-section GMAT has a change in format that test designers discovered was very important to test takers: you can now pick the order in which you do the sections. “This option gives you more control and flexibility to take the GMAT exam based on your strengths and testing preferences,” the Graduate Management Admission Council, which designs and administers the test, says on its website. You’re given two minutes at the beginning of the test to pick the order of the sections. After that, the test — taken on private workstations in a common room at the testing center — begins. The GMAT sections include: An analytical writing assessment where students have 30 minutes to analyze an

Check your academic knowledge before taking MCAT BY SCOTT BEHRENS

noozed through your physics class? Wasn’t interested in sociology? Figured bio and chem were where you needed to focus to get into medical school? If you’re taking the 146 USA TODAY COLLEGE 3 COLLEGE GUIDE 2018GUIDE 2018

Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), you’re in for a surprise: You’ll need to know all these subjects — and more — to do well on the test. Since 2015, when the MCAT was

redesigned for the first time in 24 years, test-takers have been asked to actually apply material learned in their college classes in order to show the strength of their critical and analytical thinking skills. Dr. Steve Wheeler, associate dean of admissions for the University of Louisville School of Medicine, believes the new test was structured to weed out people who just memorize material. “We’re hoping it will give us good doctors, not just a person who knows lots of facts and who has lots of knowledge, but a person who interacts with the patient who has the disease,” he said at the time the test was changed. “We’re hoping the new MCAT will help us to pick folks for medical school smart enough for the science courses but also caring enough for the individuals they will be working with.” Petros Minasi, an MCAT instructor for Kaplan Test Prep with 18 years of experience, has seen students with 4.0 GPAs who have taken all the right prerequisite classes still struggle to apply what they learned to the MCAT. Pre-med coursework generally includes classes in biology, biochemistry, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, psychology and sociology. But it’s not just enough to memorize or understand the material from those classes. “Unlike a typical undergraduate coursework exam, the test doesn’t test the material in an isolated fashion,” Minasi says. “You’ll actually have biochemistry being tested alongside chemistry or you’ll have biochemistry being tested alongside physics. The science content is foundational to the material that they’re going to need to be successful in their first couple years of medical school.” The part that gives the most students trouble, he says, is the critical analysis and reasoning skills section; the reading passages are often humanitiesbased rather than science-based, which means a student’s knowledge of and experience with science won’t help.
