of Your Campus Visit
A campus visit goes beyond brochures and web sites; visiting classes, observing student-teacher interactions, touring the campus, and meeting members of the community are great ways for a student to learn more about a college.
While on campus, students may want to do the following things:
1. Attend both small seminar and large lecture classes.
2. See the different academic facilities, including both rooms and laboratories.
3. A visit to the Student Activities Office provides an opportunity to learn about student-run clubs and organizations.
4. A visit to the Athletic Department may be helpful if the student is interested in playing a sport in college.
5. If the college offers a campus tour, this can be a nice way to see buildings, learn about campus life, and experience the campus atmosphere.
6. If the tour guide is a student, it's also a great chance to ask questions of a current student.
7. You can also learn what it is like to be a current student at the college by staying overnight in the residence halls.
8. Explore the community off-campus if there is time. Check out the transportation services and shopping venues and dining establishments in the area.
9. Eat in the school cafeteria and be sure to visit the dorms if available.
10. Above all, the campus visit gives students opportunities to experience college life first-hand. A student will need to ask himself this one question: "Can I see myself here for four years?"
