How can I research colleges if I can't visit them in person?

Hello, I'm a junior and I'm starting to research colleges. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, I won't be able to visit most of them in person. What are some alternative ways I can learn about a college's campus, culture, and academics without physically visiting? Thanks for your suggestions!

Hi there! I completely understand your situation and I'm happy to share some ideas on how you can research colleges without visiting in person. First, you can take virtual tours of the colleges you're interested in, as many schools offer them on their websites. You can also visit college review websites like Niche and Unigo to get a sense of the campus culture and student life. Don't hesitate to reach out to the admissions offices, as they can provide you with valuable information and resources. Additionally, you can join college-specific forums and social media groups to interact with current students and ask questions. Lastly, attend webinars or online information sessions, which are usually hosted by colleges throughout the year. I hope you find these suggestions helpful, and good luck with your college search!
