Hi! It's great that you're planning to visit colleges to get a better understanding of each campus. Here are some tips to make the most of your visits:

1. Take a guided tour: Most colleges offer guided tours led by current students. This is a great way to see the campus and learn about the school from someone who has firsthand experience.

2. Sit in on a class: If possible, try to attend a class or two in your intended major to get a feel for the academic environment. This can also help you see if the teaching style aligns with your preferences.

3. Talk to current students: Don't hesitate to approach students on campus and ask them about their experiences at the school. They can give you valuable insights that you might not get from official sources.

4. Explore the surrounding area: Get a sense of what's around the campus, including restaurants, shops, and recreational activities. This will help you picture yourself living in that community.

I hope these suggestions help you make the most of your college visits! Good luck!
