How to Conduct a Campus Visit

Article Image

You and your college-bound child have agreed on a list of schools to visit. Now, how do you make the most of your summer whirlwind of visits?

Explore the College Town
Some universities may be cities unto themselves, but most are often an integral part of their region. Are the school and the surrounding area safe? Does the city offer public transportation and cultural options?

Attend in Session
Try to schedule some late spring or early fall semester visits for your child to experience the institution the way students do: talking to current students, checking out the school newspaper and radio station, and eating at the school dining hall. They can plan to go to the library, attend classes and schedule visits with department chairs in their area of interest to learn more.

After Class
Because college is a comprehensive experience, your child will want to check out the gym, living arrangements and social opportunities. Schedule a campus tour to learn more and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Check out the student center, where many students study and spend free time.

Take Your Time
Long delays in your decision-making could cost you financial aid, but you don’t want to make rash decisions, either. You and your student should consider the costs and benefits of each option to make an informed financial decision.
