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.
