How to demonstrate interest in a specific college without visiting?

Hello! I'm a junior and I'm interested in a school that's quite far from where I live. Unfortunately, I won't be able to visit the campus due to distance and financial constraints. Are there other ways I can show my interest in the college? Thanks for your suggestions!

Hi there! It's great that you're interested in a specific college and want to show them your enthusiasm even though you can't physically visit the campus. There are definitely other ways you can demonstrate your interest. First, make sure you're on the college's mailing list to receive updates and information about events. This will also show them you're engaged. Additionally, attending virtual events, webinars, and online info sessions can help you learn more about the school and show your commitment. It's also a good idea to reach out to the admissions office via email to ask any questions or express your interest. If possible, try to connect with current students or alumni to gain insights into their experiences and make a personal connection. Lastly, when you write your application essays, be sure to convey your passion and knowledge about the school, highlighting specific aspects that attract you. Best of luck on your college journey!
