GOING ON A COLLEGE VISIT
Visiting a college campus helps you get a sense of what a college — and life at that college — is like. This can help you decide whether the college is right for you. When planning your campus visits, make sure to allow time to explore each college. While you’re there, talk to as many people as possible. These can include college admission staff, professors and students. Below are some other things you can do while visiting. Note that some activities, such as meeting with an admission officer or staying overnight in a dorm, might need to be set up in advance.
