That moment when a student needs to think about college and university enrollment can be quite an overwhelming experience. The thought of going to a "good" university can bring so much pressure to an individual. But what does "good" really mean?

Students may refer to a list of schools such as the top universities and colleges in America. There are even league tables that measure factors that are deemed helpful for students when it comes to admissions and enrollment. There are studies out there showing tons of good universities.

Choosing the best college or university is one of the most important decisions a person will make, as reported by The Best Colleges. Which is why finding out what a student wants is critical. So what does "good" mean?

According to Johnny Rich, an author of "The Human Script," all those league tables and lists may not make sense to some students. It is because students want different things, as reported by the Huffington Post. That ultimately means that "good" means different things to everyone.

But out of all the benefits available out there, there is one common theme that students look for. Out of their four to five years at a university, students want to ultimately get a job that would pay well. Rich stresses that there are only a handful of universities out there where it matters more where a person has studied than how well one person did before getting into a university. Graduates of some universities show that their salaries have more to do with their skills rather than which "good" university they went to.

Although the course one takes also makes a difference, "good" still means different to everyone. "Good" can be the key to a happier and fulfilling life. "Good" can mean finding the right university that is fitting for the person rather then someone else's idea of "good."
