When should I start visiting college campuses?

Hello! I'm a junior, and I've been thinking about visiting some college campuses to get a feel for the schools I'm interested in. When is the best time to start these visits, and how can I make the most out of them? Thanks for your advice!

Hello! It's great that you're thinking about visiting college campuses early on. In my experience, it's ideal to start visiting campuses during your junior year. This gives you plenty of time to explore different schools and find the best fit for you. You can also consider visiting during school breaks, so you have more time to focus on each campus visit without worrying about schoolwork. To make the most out of your visits, I would recommend doing the following: 1. Research the colleges beforehand so you have a list of questions and specific areas you want to explore. 2. Schedule a campus tour and attend information sessions to get a feel for the school's culture and environment. 3. Talk to current students to gain insight into their experiences and ask for any tips or advice they may have. 4. Explore the surrounding area to get an idea of what it would be like to live there. 5. Take notes and photos during your visits to help you remember the pros and cons of each campus. Best of luck on your college search journey!
