How To Get The Most Out Of A College Visit
- Learn about the college before you visit
Ask questions that give you further insight into the information provided online.
- Bring a camera, phone, and notepad
Having a camera or phone allows you to take pictures of the campuses while a notepad (digital or paper), allows you to take notes!
- Let the college admissions office know you are there!
That helps with student’s acceptances!
- Talk with current students
We help our clients develop a couple of questions that they would like answered by students so they don’t need to come up with them on the spot.
- Walk around campus
Every college provides student-lead tours which are not only a great chance to check off #4 but it allows students to see the academic buildings, student center, library, dorms etc.
- Sit in on a class
This is a great opportunity to see if large format lecture classes are engaging enough for students.
- Hang out where the students are
Do you see kids like you? Get brave and talk to some!
- Check out those flashy flyers
Looking at these flyers allows you to see the interests of students at various campuses.
- Set up a meeting with an academic faculty
Meeting with a faculty member allows students to get a more detailed understanding of the specific curriculum of any major.
- Note and picture overload!
Remember #2?! Be sure to organize your pictures and notes when you get home!
