How to research colleges when you can't visit?

Hey everyone! I'm a junior and I've been trying to research colleges, but I can't visit campuses right now. What are some ways I can get a feel for the campus and student life without physically being there? Thanks for any help!

Hi there! It's great to hear that you're eager to research colleges even though you can't visit in person. There are quite a few ways for you to get a feel for the campus and student life without physically being there. First, you can look for virtual tours on college websites. Many schools have interactive maps and videos that can give you a sense of the campus layout and facilities. You can also attend online information sessions and webinars, where you can ask questions and hear from admissions officers, current students, and sometimes even faculty. In addition, you can explore social media accounts and YouTube channels associated with the college, as well as blogs written by students. These platforms can provide an authentic glimpse into daily life and events on campus. Lastly, consider reaching out to current students or alumni through platforms like LinkedIn or your high school's alumni network. They can offer valuable insights and personal experiences that can help you understand the campus culture and community. Good luck with your research!
