Hi there! It's great that you're thinking about visiting colleges before applying. I think it's very important to get a feel for the campus and the atmosphere before committing to a college. One of the best ways to approach college visits is to start by researching the colleges you're interested in and creating a list. Try to visit a mix of colleges - large and small, urban and rural, public and private, to get an idea of what you might prefer. When you visit, I'd recommend going on an official campus tour, as well as exploring the campus on your own. Don't forget to talk to current students, attend a class if possible, and check out the facilities like libraries, dining halls, and recreation centers. Take notes and photos to help you remember your impressions about each campus. Finally, make sure to visit when classes are in session, as this will give you a better idea of what the campus atmosphere is like. Good luck with your college visits, and I hope you find the perfect fit!
