COLLEGE FLY-IN PROGRAMS
Visiting campus is one of the most important steps in deciding if a particular college is right for you. Because of this, most colleges offer weekend programs where students can spend a couple nights on campus, and get to know the students and faculty who bring the college to life.
Some of the programs have announced their dates and application deadlines, but for some, it’s still early. This list will provide descriptions for a number of different programs, and will offer dates for those that are available. Check their site for updated information.
