In this episode, Shellee and Alex discuss: 

  • The story behind “The College Tour” series
  • The power of knowing your “why”
  • Going on a college tour
  • What Alex and his team look for in student interviews for their show


Key Takeaways: 

  • Finding the best college school is extremely challenging, but if we could get a free inside look at what it’s really like to be a student at a particular college or university, we would be able to make a much more informed decision about which college is best for us.
  • To figure out what major they should take, students should start with a bigger picture of who they are, what they want to accomplish, and where they want to go. Choosing the best school always begins with knowing your “why”.
  • Nothing can beat the experience of stepping foot on campus or having a full ride to a university that is one of your top choices and seeing all the features that the institution has to offer.
  • Students who find a show beneficial will appreciate it more, so long as it revolves around real students telling real stories.
