HOW SHOULD I VISIT?
We recommend an in-person visit if you can! If you visit in-person, you'll get to see campus for yourself and see if it's the right fit for you. If you can't visit in-person, that's okay. There are plenty of virtual opportunities for you to explore campus from the comfort of your home.
WHAT DO I ASK?
Ask everything! An Admissions Officer will tell you everything you need to know about campus. We also encourage getting to know your tour guide and asking them questions about their personal college experience. This will help you picture what your life could look like in college.
WHEN SHOULD I VISIT?
It's never too early to visit a prospective college! Visit when you feel you're ready. Our free college visits are ideal for you, because you need to, you can visit again! Keep making visits until you've found your new home.
