Visit a College


Visiting a college campus can give you a real feel for campus atmosphere and help you make a decision on applying or attending. Most colleges provide opportunities for students to visit their campuses and sometimes they’ll even fly you in and let you stay on campus free of charge! Be sure to pay attention to dates and criteria.
