Spring and summer are popular times for college visits, and since you can’t visit campuses in-person due to the pandemic. So many colleges are bringing the universities to you by offering hosted online tours and information sessions!
Importantly, register in advance and attend! Many colleges are gathering data on potential applicant’s engagement with the school, to gauge the level of interest in attending. So, designate a college email address that you will use to apply to schools, and sign up for tours, information sessions, and to join the mailing list.
These tours and information sessions are an excellent way to get a sense of campuses, academics, and college lives. You can plan a virtual road-trip together from the safety and comfort of your sofa.
Often the easiest way to find out about these tours and information sessions is to find the “Visit Us” area of the Admission Section of the college’s website. You can also Google: “Name of College” followed by “Admissions” and “Visit” or “Information Session.”
