Tips for Effective Summer College Visits
Summer is here! This is the time of year when most parents are taking a break from college planning and taking some needed time off. As you enjoy some quality family time, you may start incorporating college visits into your vacation itineraries. Start by encouraging your students to think in terms of types of schools to visit rather than focusing on specific institutions.
Once you have created the list of schools to visit, ensure that your student has prepared themselves with background information about the school, so that they can be ready to ask questions while on campus. Ensure that you sign up for a campus tour in advance of your visit.
While on campus, talk to professors or sit in on a class lecture to get a feel for a program and explore the opportunities for you within that program. Talk to current students, read the school newspaper, and visit a dining hall or student center to get a clearer picture of the school’s culture.
