What should I look for in a college when scheduling campus visits?

Hi everyone! I'm a junior and I'm planning on scheduling some college campus visits soon. What should I be looking for during these visits to help me decide if a college is the right fit for me? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! It's great that you're thinking ahead and planning campus visits. When my child was going through the same process, we found some factors to consider that really helped them decide. First, think about the campus size and location - do you prefer a small, tight-knit community or a large, bustling campus? Also, consider the surrounding area and whether you'd be comfortable living there for the next few years. Take the time to explore the campus facilities like dorms, libraries, and recreational centers to see if they meet your needs. Additionally, pay attention to the student-to-faculty ratio, as it can impact your classroom experience. It's also a good idea to sit in on a class or two if you can, to get a feel for the teaching style and atmosphere. Finally, don't forget to talk to current students and ask about their experiences. They can provide valuable insights into the campus culture, extracurricular activities, and overall satisfaction with the college. Good luck with your visits, and I hope you find the perfect fit!
