Resources for College Visits

The spring is a popular time for high school families to explore colleges. Whether you are a senior weighing your college options or a junior who is just beginning the college search process, campus visits are invaluable.

In addition to participating in campus tours and information sessions, prospective students may be able to take additional steps to better determine if a college is a good match. Parents and students are encouraged to contact admission offices in advance of their campus visits and inquire about any available opportunities to explore a college, including speaking with current students and connecting with faculty and athletic coaches. 

As your college trip planning begins, keep in mind that there are numerous resources available, and many are free.

For valuable tips from the  Independent Educational Consultants Association   (IECA) on how you can make the most of your campus visits, please read here.

In addition, IECA offers a  resource  for helping families manage their campus visits.  The  Campus Visit Journal  enables students and parents to record their impressions of colleges in an organized, user-friendly format. Take this  journal  with you on your college trips this spring and keep track of your thoughts while they are still fresh in your mind. ACT also recently released a Campus Visit Worksheet, which I highly recommend for students.

Wintergreen Orchard House sells a helpful  guide to simplify college visit planning. Order  the  College Atlas & Planner  today and have a great asset at your side when planning campus visits. 

I f online resources are your preference for travel planning, check out  Go See Campus . Families can  search for colleges organize campus visits , and even obtain directions and restaurant recommendations for their trip.
