Hey! It's great that you're planning college visits - they can be really helpful in finding the right fit for you. Here are some tips on how to prepare and make the most of your visits:

1. Do some research beforehand: Look up the colleges you're planning to visit, and make a list of the programs and majors you're interested in. This will help you ask targeted questions during your visit.

2. Plan your itinerary: Check the college websites for tour schedules and information sessions. It's a good idea to reserve your spot in advance if required. Also, try to leave some time for exploring the campus on your own.

3. Prepare a list of questions: Think about what you want to know that isn't easily available online. Some good questions to ask could be about class sizes, internships and research opportunities, campus life, and support services for students.

4. Take notes and photos: Document your visit so that you can remember the details later when comparing colleges.

5. Talk to current students: They can give you valuable insights into what it's really like to attend the college.

I hope this helps, and enjoy your visits!
