9th-12th: How College Visits Can Help You Choose a College

How College Visits Can Help You Choose a College
Spending serious time on campus can be one of the best moves you'll ever make.
If you are deciding where to apply (and especially where to attend), consider these tips from students who have been in that situation.
  • Stay the entire day (and overnight if you can). Experiencing the campus and dorm life can be a real eye-opener.
  • Go when classes are in full swing. It won't get more real than that.
  • Check out campus life. Spend time in the dorms, dining halls, and student center. Visit clubs, sporting events, and student hangouts.
Pay attention to how you feel.
While you are busy touring the grounds and talking to students and professors, make sure you also take time to notice how comfortable and stimulated you feel on campus and with the students.
