College Campus Visits Campus visits are critical to decision making. Now that classes are back in session at colleges and universities across the nation, this would be an excellent time to visit campuses. Campus visits provide you with the opportunity to see the dorms, classrooms , and general campus life. While you are on the campus, you may also have the opportunity to schedule a college interview.
Tour the Facilities On a campus tour, ask to see the department of your primary interest [sit in on a class, if possible], the library, the dormitories, the athletic facilities, the dining halls, and campus student centers.
Speak to Current Students It is a good idea to speak to current students for their impressions of the college or university. Ask them the pros and cons of attending and why they chose to attend. Weigh their responses with your own.
Visit College Web Sites In addition, students should visit and explore the web sites of the colleges they are considering. Many colleges have excellent web sites, offering virtual tours, question and answer sessions, and information concerning what's new on campus. Students can view course offerings and overall requirements for majors or undecided options. Students can also gain a lot of information concerning what type of student the college is looking for and whether they are a good fit. This is a great way to research schools for you college interview.
