  1. Tips
    • The number one tip for making the most out of your college visit is to go to the campus during the school year.
    • If you are unable to arrive when classes are in session, visiting the school is still worth your time.
    • Reserve a spot in a school sanctioned campus tour and information session. This allows you to see what the school wants you to know about the campus and lets you visit the main parts of the campus, such as the library, cafeteria and different classrooms.
  2. Getting Personal
    • Spending a night in a dorm can give you invaluable information on the personality of the campus and what type of students attend, what goes on at night there and if you will fit in at this school.
    • Walk around the campus on your own, too, and talk to as many students as possible. Ask as many questions as you can think of, and most students will give you honest answers.
    • Sitting in on a class will help you to understand how academically gifted the students are at this school, what the professors are like and what classes are like there.
    • Take a look at campus bulletin boards, and pick up a copy of the school newspaper. Is it a very conservative campus or very liberal? How will you fit into the personality of the college?
    • Lastly, eat in the cafeteria as many freshmen spend numerous meals in the cafeteria particularly during their first year.
