How to make the most of college visits?

Hi everyone, I'm a junior planning to visit some colleges soon. How can I make the most of these visits? What should I look for during my time on campus? Are there any specific questions I should ask? Thanks for your help!

Hello! College visits can be both exciting and informative. To make the most of them, I suggest you research each college beforehand and jot down any specific questions or concerns you have. During your visit, take note of the campus atmosphere, resources, and facilities. Attend an information session and go on a guided tour, as these will provide a wealth of information about academics, extracurricular activities, and support services. Don't forget to explore the surrounding community, as it's important to see if you can picture yourself living there for the next few years. Talk to current students and ask them about their experiences and what they like or dislike about the college. This can give you a better understanding of the school's culture and student life. Lastly, visit the academic department you're interested in and ask questions about the major, faculty, and research opportunities. Enjoy your visits and best of luck!
