How to demonstrate interest in a college?

Hi everyone! I'm a junior, and I've heard that demonstrating interest in a college can improve your chances of getting in. What are some ways to show a college that you're genuinely interested in attending? Thanks for your help!

Hi there! Demonstrating interest in a college is a great idea, and there are several ways to do it. First, try visiting the campus if possible. This will give you a chance to see the school in person, talk to current students, and attend information sessions. If you can't visit in person, many colleges offer virtual tours and online information sessions. Be sure to sign up for their mailing list, as this shows that you are interested in receiving updates from the college. You can also engage with the college on social media, attend webinars, or even reach out to admissions representatives with any questions you may have. Finally, when it comes to your application, make sure you tailor your essays to the specific college and explain why you are interested in their programs, campus culture, and any unique opportunities they offer. This will show that you have done your research and are genuinely excited about the prospect of attending. Best of luck in your college search!
