How can I make the most of a college visit?

Hi everyone! I'm a high school junior, and I'm planning on visiting some colleges over the next few months. What are some things I should make sure to do while I'm on campus to get a good feel for the school? I want to make the most of these visits. Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's great that you're already thinking about making the most of your college visits. When my child went through the process, we found it helpful to attend information sessions and take campus tours offered by the admissions office. This will give you a good overview of the school. Don't hesitate to ask questions during the tour or session. Make a list of questions beforehand, so you don't forget to ask anything important to you. If possible, try to explore the campus on your own too, and maybe even grab a bite at the dining hall. You can get a better feel of the campus atmosphere this way. Additionally, if you know anyone attending the school, reach out to them and see if they can show you around or give you their perspective. Don't forget to take notes and photos to help you remember the experience later. Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your visits!
