How can I demonstrate interest in a college?

Hey guys! I'm a junior and I've heard that demonstrating interest in a college can be beneficial during the admissions process. I was wondering what are some ways that I can show a college that I'm genuinely interested in attending? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's great that you're thinking about how to demonstrate your interest in a college. From my experience with my own child, there are a few ways you can do this effectively. First, make sure to visit the college if you can, and take a campus tour or attend an open house event. This will not only give you a chance to learn more about the school, but also show them that you're putting in the effort to get to know them better. Another way is to sign up for their mailing list and attend any webinars or virtual events they may offer. This will keep you informed about the college and show that you're engaged with their community. Don't be afraid to reach out to the admissions office with any questions or concerns you may have, as this can also demonstrate your genuine interest. Lastly, when it comes time to write your application essays, make sure to tailor them specifically to the college in question, highlighting why it's a perfect fit for you. Good luck in your college search journey!
