Check out the Honors Program
Most colleges have an honors program you can test into or apply for—and a lot of them provide pretty fantastic perks for the students in them. For one thing, you get an honors designation on any official paperwork from your school, which looks fantastic when you start applying to grad school or looking into transfers. Some have special scholarships you can qualify for as well.
My community college has a completely free tuition scholarship for honors program recipients—I wouldn’t have been able to afford college otherwise. Some colleges have special housing for honor students, or special places for them to study, even. Every college is different and every honors program is different—but there’s no harm in asking around to see if it’s worth trying for.
