Hey there! It's great that you're starting to research colleges and want to get a feel for the social life and campus culture at different schools. One of the best ways to get a sense of campus life is to visit the schools, if possible. You can take a campus tour, sit in on classes, and even arrange to stay overnight with a current student. This will give you a firsthand look at what life is really like at that college.

If visiting isn't an option, you can still learn a lot about campus culture by checking out college forums, YouTube channels, and social media. Websites like Niche.com and CollegeConfidential.com have student reviews and discussions about campus life. You can also search for Facebook groups and Instagram pages dedicated to the college you're interested in. Don't hesitate to reach out to current students, as they can be a valuable resource in understanding the social scene and campus vibe. Good luck with your research, and I hope you find the perfect fit for you!
