How can I make the most out of college visits?

Hello! I'm starting to visit colleges soon, and I want to make sure I get the most out of each visit. What should I be looking for or asking during these tours? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! College visits can be really exciting and informative. To make the most out of them, here are a few suggestions: 1) Attend an information session and take a campus tour. 2) Sit in on a class or two to get a feel for the academic environment. 3) Talk to current students and ask about their experiences, such as campus life, extracurricular activities, and support resources. 4) Visit the dorms to see where you might be living and check out the dining options. 5) Explore the surrounding area to get a sense of what's available off-campus. 6) Speak with faculty or advisors in your intended major to understand program requirements and opportunities. 7) If possible, schedule an overnight stay to truly immerse yourself in the campus atmosphere. Remember to take notes and photos to help you compare schools later. Good luck and enjoy the visits!
