Higher education plays a pivotal role in the lives of many, and we firmly believe that decisions of this magnitude should be made with adequate awareness. Whether it be deciding if trade school or university is a better fit or choosing the best topic for your supplemental essay, College Connect hopes to be a constant resource that students can turn to.
