Before You Commit

By Andrey Ligayi

A resource for teens, parents, and everyone currently looking into higher education, Before You Commit was created to help navigate your college decision by providing real experiences from current or former students. Delving into the pros and cons of each school and looking into what the college reps just won’t be able to tell you, each week we look at a new school, a new perspective, and a new voice on education. We’ll also go in depth on different majors, concentrations, demographics, and more. This podcast is run by students - for students; after all, we’re in this together. College is an unforgettable experience, and we want to make sure you do it right.Soundtrack by Thovo Beats Artwork by Rachel Lu You can find us on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music, Stitcher and more!New Episodes every Monday
