What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Choosing a college is a big deal -- after all, it’s the place that you’ll call home for the next four years of your life. College is where you chase your dream, find out what kind of professional you want to be, make lifelong friendships, and maybe even meet the person you want to marry. With over 5,000 colleges and universities in the US, how do you find the one that’s the right fit for you?

Today as a part of our countdown to decision day series, we’re asking our OCM Ambassadors to think back on the college application process. You’ll be hearing from:

  • Erika Nash (@erika.is.moving.to.mars), a Junior Media Arts & Visual Communication major at Houghton College
  • Cheyenne Smith (@chey_marie1813), a Freshman Music Education major at Texas Woman’s University
  • Alec Corsi (@adcorsi), a Junior Management Information Systems major at Pennsylvania State University
  • Ella Lydon (@ellalydonn_), a Freshman Marketing major at Western Carolina University
  • Aiyana Adams (@yana.jxsmine), a Sophomore Psychology & Human Development major at SUNY Albany
  • Kate Richardson (@katerichardsonn_), a Freshman  Graphic Design major at Samford
  • Rebecca Brennan (@rebeccabrennen), a Junior International Fashion Marketing major at Drexel
  • Bailey Dell’Erba (@bails.c), a Junior TV Production & Digital Media double major at SUNY Plattsburgh

1. What were the must-haves that you were looking for in a school?

Ella - affordability was a big factor, and also I wanted to be close to home. I didn't really know what i wanted to do, but if I did then what programs they offered would also have been important to consider.

Aiyana - I was definitely looking for a school within my state so that I could apply for in-state tuition. I was also looking for a campus that felt like a real college campus with dorms for students. I didn’t want to be within a city, I liked the idea of a “campus feel” with a football field and libraries you can walk to.

Alec - Financial feasibility was a big part in my application process. Also, recognition of the school was important to me. Knowing that if I moved across the country after graduation, that potential employers would recognize where I went to school.

Kate - I wanted a campus with a small student, big campus feel. I also wanted to be close to family in case something ended up happening where I wanted family close by.

Rebecca - The main reason I came to Drexel was their co-op program which is the opportunity to get 6 months of working experience while you’re in school. Not a lot of schools offer that, and I want to work in the fashion industry which is very competitive. I wanted to have experience so I could be a step ahead - that was one of the main factors I considered when applying to schools.

Bailey - I really wanted an actual campus, I visited my brother who went to a city school and I knew I wanted a “campus” vibe and experience. Another huge factor was making sure they had a dance team because I’m a dancer and I wanted to continue doing that.

Cheyenne - I got the chance to visit a bunch of my schools. Now, I don’t know if this happens to everyone, and it’s really cool if it does, but once I stepped onto the campus I’m on right now, it immediately felt like home. I looked into all the schools I applied to and I knew they had everything I wanted in my major, but stepping onto the campus really made my decision. It’s not something I can explain.  

Michelle - I wanted a small school because I didn’t want to have to take a bus or shuttle to another building. My dorm was basically a block from the library. I wanted a small school where everything was around each other and convenient to get to.
Erika
- I had a couple big things. First was the opportunity to study abroad, I knew that was something I had to do and I’m happy I got to do my freshman year. Another thing was that I also wanted a small school, so finding a smaller school with the programs I was interested in was sort of hard.

Dylan - My main focus was finding a school that had the academic programs I was looking for.

2. Looking back, were you right? Have they changed now that you are actually in school?

Ella - I kind of wish I would’ve broadened my horizons a little bit and looked into more schools.

Bailey - I feel like I can relate to that “home” feeling Cheyenne was talking about. I’m 6 hours from home, and yes the drive sucks but once I’m here I just feel comfortable and at my second home. It’s comforting and a nice place to be.

Michelle - For me it was definitely the right choice to go to a small school because I got to know my classmates and make a lot of friends. If i went to a big school, each class has over 100 people in it and it would’ve been difficult for me personally to make friends.

3. Why did you choose your campus?

Rebecca- I had two front runners, Drexel and University of Rhode Island. I’m from New Jersey, so Drexel was closer to home and they had a better program for me.

Kate - I chose Samford over Lipscomb in Nashville because Birmingham is a much smaller city than Nashville. I wanted somewhere less busy and hectic. Samford has a really good art and design program.
