Hello! It's great that you're planning your campus visits ahead of time. Campus visits are an important part of the college selection process. Here are a few tips to make the most out of your visits:

1. Plan your visits during the academic year, if possible. This way, you can experience the campus when classes are in session and students are active.

2. Take a guided campus tour, usually offered by the admissions office. This will give you a comprehensive overview of the campus and its facilities.

3. Attend an information session to learn more about the college's academic programs, extracurricular activities, and student life.

4. Sit in on a class or two, if allowed, to get a feel for the academic environment and teaching styles.

5. Talk to current students and ask them about their experiences. They can provide valuable insights that you won't find in brochures or online.

6. Explore the surrounding area and community, as this can be an important factor in your overall college experience.

I hope these tips help you make the most of your campus visits! Best of luck!
