As a student-athlete searching for colleges, should I focus on majors/classes or athletics?

First focus on the majors about which you are thinking. Once you have that list of colleges, see which of them have your sport at the level you wish to play. Remember that you are always one injury away from not being able to play; choosing a college where you will be happy and can study what you want—whether or not you play sports—is a good idea.
