Martinez 1Madison MartinezMrs. MooneyEnglish 3 H27thMarch 2019College Research PaperChoosing the right college to attend is one of the most important choices I must make as a student. There are many things to look for when searching for the college right for you. I wouldlike to attend college in a city, where people can go out at any time of the day and be able to hearthe cars honking, the animals pattering around for food. In my opinion, being able to hear those noises would soothe me and make me feel as if I fit in with the city life. I would also like to havethe choice to dorm at college. I think dorming would be a great chance to meet all different typesof people and easily make new friends; however, I will most likely commute instead because dorming is expensive and my family does not want me to be far away from them, as do I. Next, the crime rate is an important factor when going to college. I want to go to a college with a low crime rate, as well as an active college police force. I would always not be able to attend a college where I do not feel safe, and my family would be slightly more relaxed knowing I am attending a safe college. Additionally, the college I attend must have the major I want. In the future, I would like to work for the FBI in a forensics lab; therefore, the college I attend has to have a great science program that gives me many opportunities. To continue, what I look for in a college is that they have a band I would be able to perform in. I have been performing in band since elementary school and although I do not plan to pursue music as a career, I would still like to carry on my talents into college. Overall, after deciding what I would like in a college, I have
Martinez 2chosen my three colleges as Stockton University, University of New Haven, and Boston University.To begin, the first college I have chosen is Stockton University. Stockton University has two main campuses, located in Galloway and Atlantic City, New Jersey. The Galloway campus holds a scenic background in the Pinelands National Reserve, while the Atlantic City campus is just minutes from the beach (Stockton University, 1-4). Stockton University only has around 9,000 students, making it an ideal school for me (Stockton.edu). The student-faculty ratio is 17:1,which is one of the things that draws me to the school (Stockton University, 7). Stockton University has an undergraduate program in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, a field of study I am interested in pursuing as a career. At the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, students are taught rigorously and have the chance to complete research with the teachers. There is also a high success rate when applying to jobs after graduating from college. The application process for Stockton University is easy, as they accept the Common Application online, as do many other colleges (Stockton.edu).
