College Bound Advantage
Ohio is blessed to have over 60 independent and 14 public colleges and universities as well as 18 community colleges, however each school has different academic programs, degrees of selectivity, cultures, student body demographics, academic support services, cost, student organizations, locations, and resources. Some colleges apply substantive resources to remediation and support a variety of learning challenges; others are highly selective and allocate resources to extending academics, and all in between. Additionally there may be significant differences between the same academic programs (majors) between schools. For example, while one school may offer a Geology major supported by 1 full-time faculty member, limited resources, no active student organization, and limited connection to potential employers yet another, at the same cost, may offer the same major but supports it with 7 full-time faculty members, a large departmental budget, a vibrant and active student organization, an annual study abroad trip, and a recurrent flow of potential employers supporting the program and its students. How will you know which is which?
