Hi there! It's great that you're starting to visit colleges to find the right fit for you. College visits and tours can be extremely helpful for getting a feel of the campus atmosphere, the students, and the facilities. Here are some tips to make the most of your college visits:

1. Schedule your visit ahead of time: Reach out to the admissions office to register for a campus tour and information session. This will allow you to get the most comprehensive experience.

2. Attend an information session: These sessions provide you with essential information about the college and its admissions process.

3. Take a guided tour: Student-led tours give you an insider's perspective on campus life and facilities.

4. Sit in on a class (if permitted): This allows you to get a feel for the academic environment and teaching style.

5. Talk to current students: Ask them about their experiences, favorite aspects of the college, and any advice they might have.

6. Explore the campus and surrounding area on your own: This will give you a better sense of whether you'd enjoy living there.

Happy visiting!
