Touring colleges during summer?

Do colleges still offer tours during the summer months? I know it might not be the ideal time, but my family is planning a trip and I think it'll be convenient to visit some campuses while we're on the road.

Yes, most colleges offer tours during the summer months. Although it may not be the optimal time to visit due to the absence of a bustling campus atmosphere, it can still provide valuable insights into campus layout, facilities, and overall environment. It's certainly better to visit during the summer than not at all if your family's schedule makes it most convenient.

When planning your trip, be sure to check the college's admissions websites for information on tour schedules and availability. In some cases, you may need to register in advance for a tour or an information session. Additionally, consider reaching out to the college's admissions office if you have any questions or concerns about visiting during the summer.

Remember that while visiting a campus during the summer months may not paint the most accurate picture of college life during the academic year, it can still be a valuable way to narrow down your list of potential schools. Walking around the campus and getting a feel for its surroundings can help you determine if you can envision yourself there for your college years. After your visit, you might also want to do some additional research on the school, such as connecting with current students or alumni to learn about their experiences attending the college during the academic year.
