Hey there! It's great to hear that you're starting to visit colleges. It's an exciting time, and I'm happy to share some tips based on my experience with my child. First and foremost, take a campus tour. This will give you a good overview of the campus and its facilities. If possible, try to attend an information session to learn about the admissions process, financial aid, and academic programs. Don't forget to explore the surrounding area, too, as this will be a part of your college experience. While on campus, talk to current students and ask about their experiences, favorite aspects of the school, and any challenges they've faced. If you can, sit in on a class or two to get a feel for the academic environment. Lastly, take plenty of pictures and notes to help you remember your impressions of each school. Good luck with your visits, and I hope you find the perfect fit for you!
