How can I research colleges when I can't visit them in person?

Hello! I'm in the process of researching colleges, but I haven't been able to visit many campuses in person. Can you suggest some ways to get a feel for different schools without physically visiting them? Thanks!

Hi there! It's great that you're taking the initiative to research colleges even though you can't visit them in person. There are actually quite a few ways to get a feel for different schools without physically being there. First, I'd recommend checking out each college's official website and social media accounts. This will give you a general overview of the school's programs, campus life, and culture. Additionally, many schools have virtual campus tours available on their websites with interactive maps and 360-degree views of various locations on campus. Another great resource is YouTube, where you can find tons of videos made by current students or alumni sharing their experiences, as well as official videos from the colleges themselves. Lastly, don't hesitate to reach out to the admissions offices or current students via email or online forums to ask any specific questions you might have. Good luck with your college search!
