Why is it important to choose a college close to your home? The median distance college students travel to college is 94 miles from their home town. 75% of students attend college within 230 miles from home. Travel time and cost becomes a significant factor when you consider moving all of your belongings back and forth to campus each year. It's much easier to pack up the family car and drive a few hours than ship your gear across the country. Additionally, consider the cost and time it will take each time you come home for Thanskgiving, winter or spring break. If you plan on attending a public college, it will also be more affordable if you select a local school in your home state.
