College Visits And How To Make The Most Of ItBy Audri Taylors, UniversityHerald Reporter
A high school student's visit to the college of their choice is one of the exciting parts of their journey to college. It can be pretty exhausting, but it is also a lot of fun. This can be done formally or informally. The most important thing is that students learn as much information as they can from each school so that they can make sound comparison and decision.
Here are a few tips for high school students who need to make the most of their campus visits.
Attend official campus tours
Official campus tours, according to The Seattle Times will make the students feel and experience what it is like to be a college student for a day. There are some tours that offer surprising benefits like a scholarship.
Visit a diverse selection of schools
Students must visit different public and private colleges. This will help them discover more amazing things they would not be expecting from these schools.
Take notes and pictures
This will be very helpful if a student is looking at a number of different schools, according to NBC News. During the visits, they learn a lot of things from each college and it is important for them to take notes because it will help them make the decision later when they already have to select for their college.
Get a sense of the school and gather more details later
If there are some questions not asked during the tour, that is perfectly okay. These things can be found on the college websites. The most important thing is that they have experienced what it is like to be in a particular college, the types of students it attracts, the culture in the school and many others. Later on, the student can just do more research when it comes to the information about the institution.
