For students who are in the process of researching colleges/universities, one of the best ways to learn more is to schedule a college visit. Taking the time to visit a campus and ask questions will ultimately help you with your decision-making process.
The most successful way to compare schools on your list is to be prepared with questions. Don’t be afraid to ask these of your tour guide, professors, or admissions counselors. But as important as the campus visit is, it can be a waste of time if you don’t ask the right questions. This is your chance to get to know what life would be like on a particular campus!
To help you with planning your college visit we’ve compiled a list of questions with assistance from Donna Menhart, Director of Undergraduate Studies at The Hartt School.
College and career coaches and consultants can help students and parents in several ways. College coaching helps to navigate the college search, assesses students’ goals and skills, and prepares students for the application process. Coaches are experts in what colleges look for and how they make admissions decisions.
